Be a Game Changer. Become a Coach.

We are looking for coaches and volunteers – all experience levels are welcome

At First Tee, we help kids discover what’s inside of them, guide them to strengthen it and mentor them to put it into action in everything they do.  

To do this, we need enthusiastic and caring individuals to serve as positive mentors and role models to kids and teens of various backgrounds. Our coaches’ ability to develop impactful relationships with our participants is the backbone of our program.  

“It’s not just about what they look like, but it’s also about different stories that they have and different obstacles that they may have overcome. So our coaches have a wide variety of experience, a wide variety of backgrounds that can match our young people.” – Rebecca, Program Director First Tee – Greater Philadelphia 

You don’t have to be a golf pro (or even a good golfer), we will provide the training you need! Our training system is built on research-proven methods of positive youth development, providing coaches with the tools to make kids feel safe, included and empowered. 

Our chapters rely on volunteers — sometimes year-round — to accomplish our mission, and not all of those goals involve golf. Most chapters need support off the course as well. These opportunities include: 

  • Fundraising/Events 
  • Operations/Administration 
  • Mentoring/Tutoring 
  • In-school program support 
  • By contributing your time and talent, you can directly make an impact in a child’s life. 

If you have a passion for impact and want to become a coach, reach out to a chapter near you!
