Volunteer Opportunities


Thank you for your interest in volunteering for First Tee of the Virginia Peninsula. We believe that a meaningful, quality relationship between coach and participant is vital to our program!

“Young people don’t care what a coach knows until they know a coach cares.”

The volunteers that commit their time to improving the lives of the youth that come into our program are priceless in fulfilling our vision to make the game of golf accessible to all youth and positively impact their lives through programs that promote life skills, character development, and healthy choices.


We offer many different opportunities to volunteer so you can volunteer where your interests are!
