At The First Tee of Hawaii, we are serious about having fun. We also believe that meaningful, quality relationships are essential to inspire young people to look to the future, set goals, and unlock their potential.

Without mentorship, positive youth development just doesn’t happen!

Young people don’t care what you know until they know that you care.


Who are our volunteers?

Golf is at our core, but you don’t need to be a professional instructor or scratch player to make a difference.  If you have an interest in golf and positively impacting the lives of youth, there are many ways to get involved!



ON the golf course

Every year, we serve nearly hundreds of youth through weekly classes and special events at local golf courses.  Through the mentorship of caring adults, these young people will learn valuable golf and life skills.  You could be one of those mentors!

We provide training to help you prepare, and experienced staff to show you the way.

OFF the golf course

Along with coaching, there are many other ways to get involved with The First Tee:

  • Fundraising
  • Special Events
  • Administration
  • Mentoring/tutoring
  • In-school programming

We are currently recruiting for the following roles:

  • Photography
  • Media & videography
  • Phone calls
  • Transportation of equipment
  • Organization

If you are not on Oahu, but on one of the outer islands, we need you even more!



“The best gift has been for me to be able to work with the Coaches, Staff and the kids. I have done a lot of volunteering in my world and your organization is one of my most favorite. I always feel that my time is well spent and there are such good vibes with all of the other volunteers.”

– Coach Sharon


By contributing your time and talent, you can directly make an impact in a young person’s life. So thanks for your interest in joining The First Tee, and we look forward to seeing you at the golf course!
