Volunteer Mentors Needed

We are looking for volunteers to help our lead coaches during "Life Skills" classes. You would be assigned the same team of four students each week to guide them through the activity stations. We have highly trained professionals and volunteers to focus on their golf skills so it doesn't matter what abilities in golf you have....what matters is your "Life Skills". Please join us in helping to make a positive change in a young persons life.
