Become a Coach or Volunteer

Join us in Building Game Changers!

We are looking for coaches – all experience levels are welcome.

We help kids in Monterey County discover their potential. We guide them to strengthen their character and mentor them to give their all 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. 

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.

If you have a passion for impact and want to become a coach, reach out to our Human Resources Director Cristina Herrera.


We need more than coaches to make First Tee possible. 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.
