The First Tee Utah appreciates its volunteers and is always interested in speaking with people that want to help the organization fulfill its mission. Children aren’t born knowing how to live life with integrity, confidence and respect – yet their future depends on it.
Volunteer as a Coach or Mentor to Utah Kids and Teens
“Parents come up to me all the time and say, ‘I don’t what it is, but something’s different since they’ve been coming here. They talk less, they’re more respectful.’ The life skills part is really cool. Watching kids light up are goose-bumps moments for us.”
—Kyle Harris, volunteer coach
We’ve found that one of the single biggest factors behind the success of our programs is our volunteer coaches. Young people don’t care what a coach knows until they know a coach cares. When that relationship exists, that’s when the kids in our program really take to heart the life skills and character values we teach in our programs.
The nice thing is, you don’t have to be a golf pro or even a good golfer to be a volunteer coach. Our coach program provides all the training you need. Working through The First Tee Coach Program, you choose how involved you’d like to be in the program, from the Assistant Coach level all the way up to The First Tee’s Master Coach level.
Additional Volunteer Opportunities
We need more than just coaches to accomplish our mission. We rely on volunteers year round to help us reach our goals and impact more Utah kids. Additional volunteer opportunities include:
- Serving on our Board of Directors
- Joining our Programs and Operations Committee
- Joining our Fundraising Committee
- Sponsoring a fundraising event
- Serving as a mentor to youth participants
- Attending and supporting chapter events
- Becoming an Ambassador of The First Tee and promoting the chapter within the community
Volunteer opportunities can be project-based (such as volunteering at our annual fundraising golf Classic in June or helping out at the Champions Challenge we hold for the kids who participate in our National School Program) or on-going.
