Spring programs across the Sandhills will kick off in three weeks at golf courses, youth centers and ball fields near you.
In an effort to achieve our vision – ensuring a diverse group of kids are provided the chance to develop and grow through mentorship and character education while enjoying the game of golf – we have set the lofty goal of expanding our program offerings to reach 27% more kiddos across 2019.
So, how will we reach 27% more kiddos? A little less sleep and the help of more volunteers!
If seeing kids grin ear to ear when they win their first round of putt-tac-toe, or squeal happily when they launch a rubber ducky out of the bunker excites you – or, even more, having a participant come back on week 3 and exclaim they took out the trash without being asked or studied a little longer and made their best grade on this week’s spelling test – we’d like to tell you more!
To prepare for our March kick off, we are hosting Volunteer Orientation and Training on Tuesday, March 5 at Pinehurst No. 6 from 3:00pm – 5:00pm.
Orientation and Training is open to all volunteers – whether you are returning, newly signed up or simply interested in what we are all about!
The format provides an engaging and interactive overview of The First Tee’s positive youth development model, allowing volunteers to feel confident in their availability to assist with the delivery of the Life Skills Experience curriculum.
During these sessions, we will facilitate a mock lesson plan, review safety standards, introduce The First Tee Coaching Philosophy, and answer any questions you may have.
Anyone in the community that has a willingness to give their time as a positive youth mentor – through golf – is encouraged to attend to learn more.
And, don’t worry! Attending doesn’t commit you to volunteering, it simply gives you a peek inside what we do.
But, for those ready to commit, remember, you can be an asset to The First Tee of the Sandhills no matter your handicap or lack thereof!
Interested? Reach out to Matthew Sullivan at 910.255.3035 or firstname.lastname@example.org to save a spot at Pinehurst No. 6 on March 5.
We hope to see you in a few weeks!
