pic013Volunteers Needed

The First Tee of Atlanta is looking for adult volunteers that are interested in positively impacting the lives of young people. If you enjoy working with young people and have the time to commit to at least one session, (sessions last for 8 to 10 weeks) you may want to consider our program. We are always looking for dependable volunteers, and we have several opportunities for a potential volunteer to consider.

Volunteer Instructors for the youth program teach golf and life skill in an “outdoor classroom” on the range and golf course of John A. White Golf Course. Instructors must know and be able to demonstrate the basic grip, stance, and swing. There are many classes to choose from. You do not have to be a scratch golfer.

2019 Session I Classes:
Saturdays 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM
Saturdays 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM
Saturdays 1:30 PM to 3:00 PM

Currently, we are about to begin our first session of the year, which will begin on February 23rd and will run through April 20th. We have a HUGE need of volunteers for all 3 time slots, especially at 11:30AM and 1:30PM and you are welcomed to volunteer for any and/or all time slots! All classes are 1.5 hours long.

We are also seeking volunteers for the Golf Course and Youth Program Operations in the following areas:

Administration – Monday – Fridays during office hours
Marshalls – Monday – Sundays during golf course operation hours
Starters – Monday – Sundays during golf course operation hours
Range Pickers – Monday – Sundays during golf course operation hours
Special Events – As Needed
Fundraising Events – As Needed

The volunteer application and information package is available here.

The additional part of the Volunteer On Boarding process is a satisfactory background check. As you can imagine, it is a requirement as we work closely with children. To speed up the entire process, you may want to go ahead and get your background check taken care of. In order to do that, You can opt to do an online background check with our partners at Verified Volunteers for $8 (please email us at admin@thefirstteeatlanta.org if you want to do the online version, so that we can send you the appropriate link) or you will need to get a $10 Money Order and go to:

The City of Atlanta Police Department
Background Check Dept.

Atlanta, GA 30331
