Volunteers must attend Volunteer Orientation at The First Tee of Central Arkansas that lasts about 45 minutes. Orientation will help you familiarize yourself with the program and the opportunities for having an impact on a child. During this session you will meet other volunteers, learn the basics of the program so you can answer general questions from parents and you will gain an understanding of the code of conduct to which the students must adhere.
We will confirm your assignment and work with you to ensure that you are comfortable with your responsibilities. Schedules will be provided so you can sign up for times convenient for you.
We welcome your questions and feedback about our training, orientation and your assignment. We want to ensure that you have a fulfilling volunteer experience at The First Tee of Central Arkansas!
