VOLUNTEERING

First Tee relies heavily on the help of volunteers to run our programs. While many opportunities relate to golf, most locations have the need for support off the course as well. Some of the volunteer opportunities at locations include event planning, mentoring, coaching, and in-school programming. We are always in need of trustworthy, caring adults to help us model the First Tee’s Nine Core Values: Honesty, Integrity, Perseverance, Judgment, Responsibility, Respect, Courtesy, Confidence, and Sportsmanship.
