Become a Coach or Volunteer and Make a Difference

Our Philosophy

Without caring mentors, positive youth development just doesn’t happen. At The First Tee, we take coaching and volunteering seriously. We believe that a meaningful, quality relationship between coaches, volunteers and participant is vital to our program.

“Young people don’t care what a coach knows until they know a coach cares.”
