April 15th marks the beginning of Volunteer Open Enrollment. By far, one of the most valued roles is that of a Junior Coach, who mentors with her/his knowledge of golf and The First Tee Life Skills. They are trained and given the same responsibilities as our other volunteer mentors. Sean has been a superstar Junior Coach for two years now. Read about Sean's journey to our program and how he helped one youngster with autism realize his golf potential. Thank you Sean, and all Volunteer Coaches, for investing in our young participants.
