The First Tee of Greater Austin relies heavily on volunteer support to make our programs successful. We offer programs for our participants year-round and have a wide range of opportunities to get involved. Most of our golf volunteer positions do not require golf experience. We provide our volunteers with the training and support necessary to have a successful volunteer experience.

Beginning September 11th thru December 9th, we have after-school and weekend classes for students ages 5-17. We teach the kids golf and important life lessons and give them a safe and fun place to spend their summer. We would love to have you join our team as a coach or volunteer. If you are interested and available please contact Jennifer MacCurrach at marketing@firstteeaustin.org and visit our volunteer application form to find out more information at https://www.thefirstteeaustin.org/ways-to-give/volunteer/

We are flexible in terms of scheduling days and shifts (morning/afternoon) for volunteers. Please feel free to get in touch and let us know your availability. We'd love to have you as much as your schedule allows!

About The First Tee of Greater Austin

Location:

5501 Ed Bluestein, Austin, TX 78723, Austin, TX 78723, US

Mission Statement

A local chapter of The First Tee National Organization, The First Tee of Greater Austin's vision is based on the unwavering belief that: 1. We can enrich kids' lives with lessons taught through the game of golf. It is our goal that participants not only learn the life-long game of golf, but that they also acquire personal assets--such as resiliency, self-worth and a sense of integrity and responsibility--which will help them develop long-term physical, mental and social health. 2. Kids from all walks of life should have a place to learn and play. Consequently, our purpose is to introduce kids of all walks of life to the game of golf; and to create facilities and programs that make golf more affordable and accessible. 3. The First Tee of Greater Austin is in need of good mentor/coaches to help teach these valuable lessons in our weekly golf lessons.

Description

The First Tee of Greater Austin is a nationally-affiliated, PGA, LPGA, Augusta National Golf Course, PGA America and USGA endorsed not-for-profit organization that strives to:
