Volunteers & Mentors


As local chapter of First Tee, we rely heavily on volunteers to support our many programs and services for youth. Some of the volunteer opportunities include assisting coaches, data entry, fundraising, special events and Central Florida Junior Golf Tour operations. First Tee – Lakeland also seeks mentors. Mentors are very special people who donate their time to work one on one with the students.

If you are interested in volunteering or mentoring for First Tee – Lakeland, please contact Program Director, AnnaLeis Caldwell.

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.
