We Want You!

No golf experience required!

If you’ve volunteered with us previously, welcome back! If you’re volunteering with us for the first time, welcome aboard!

We are excited to have you join the team at The First Tee of Central Ohio. Whether you play golf or not, we need your help! There are many ways to support our program and your time is very much appreciated.

Join us every day or just a few days. We offered year-round sessions for our participants, including evening and Saturday programs. This gives you an opportunity to volunteer year-round.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

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

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

WHY VOLUNTEER?

To promote an organization that impacts the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instills life-enhancing values and promotes healthy choices through the game of golf.  The ideal volunteer candidate is enthusiastic, energetic and passionate about the work that they do for the benefit of the participants and the organization.
