Our Philosophy

overview-6

Without caring mentors, positive youth development just doesn’t happen. At First Tee, we take coaching seriously. 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.”

First Tee — Southern Colorado Volunteer program helps young people discover their unique talents and dreams, equip them with life-enhancing values and skills to achieve their goals through mentoring, and inspire them to become leaders that transform their families and community.

As you consider volunteering for our chapter, know that the safety of our kids is our first priority.  Please read our Prevention Policies to see how we conduct programs and activities at our chapter.
