The First Tee of the Inland Northwest depends on volunteers. We operate seven months of the year and offer the opportunity to volunteer in a variety of capacities. Whether you have 2 hours a day, 2 hours a week, or 2 hours a month, we need your help. If you enjoy helping kids, we can use your help! If you’re a parent or grandparent of a student and would like to help, we need it! The volunteer opportunities are endless and time commitments are flexible enough to fit your schedule. Volunteers are needed in all areas to impact the youth of our community!
We Need Class Assistants & Team Leaders!
(No Golf Skills Necessary - Just Life Skills!)
Step 1: Review our current list of Volunteer Opportunities and think about what you would like to do. Some of our positions offer physically exhilarating opportunities such as playing/monitoring golf on the course, while others are mentally stimulating such as teaching life lessons on the driving range/course or in the classroom. Other positions are support roles necessary to keep our program and facility operating smoothly. But we can tell you all of our positions will give you the emotional satisfaction of having worked with and helped the youth of our community.

Step 3: Attend Volunteer Orientation Training. Beginner volunteer training will help you familiarize yourself with the program and the oportunities for having an impact on youth. During this 2 hour training session you will meet other volunteers, learn the basics of the program so you can answer general questions from parents, and gain an understanding of the code of conduct to which the students must adhere. (Training schedules are provided following the application process)
Step 4: Review the program and event schedule to sign up for classes convenient to your schedule. All classes have pre-determined lesson plans and are available to all volunteers and assistants. The lead coaches will work with you to ensure understanding of the curriculum being taught. We welcome your questions and feedback about our training, orientation, and assignments. We want to ensure that you have a fulfilling volunteer experience at The First Tee of the Inland Northwest.
