Mentors are needed to accompany our participants during 9-hole rounds following golf instruction. Mentors do not need to be proficient at playing golf, but should have a basic knowledge of safety, pace of play, and rules. Primarily, mentors provide a fun, safe, environment for our participants and encourage their development of The First Tee’s Nine Core Values and Nine Healthy Habits.
For questions regarding volunteering as a mentor please contact AJ Kriha, Program Director, at (608) 327-5514 ext. 701 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
