After-School Youth Coach, North Florida

Be a Game Changer. Become An After-School Coach With Us!

We are looking for Youth Coaches to lead our After-School Golf and Life Skills classes. Golf Experience helpful, but not required. If you’re an enthusiastic and caring individual who wants to serve as a positive mentor and role model to kids and teens, let’s talk! We’ll provide all the training that you’ll need. In return, you’ll have fun and gain a sense of “making a difference” in kids’ lives through a national organization dedicated building character in today’s youth.

SUMMARY: After-School Coaches lead golf classes for kids and/or teens onsite at elementary schools and at golf venues throughout our seven-county North Florida service area. Currently, we are looking for After-School Specialists for after-school classes in St. Johns, Duval, Flagler and Putnam Counties. We conduct onsite after-school classes through Extended Day Departments or youth organizations at outdoor fields and/or paved surfaces, using modified hard plastic golf clubs, alternative balls, and targets. In addition, we offer after-school classes at golf facilities with one-way van pickup from schools, using regulation golf equipment outdoors or indoors. All classes are taught in a fun and interactive way, through hands-on golf instruction, games, golf activities and mentoring in age-based small group settings. Our after-school classes (60-minutes or 90-minutes) meet weekly in multi-week blocks (4-6 weeks) throughout the school year.

SCHEDULES AND COMPENSATION: After-School Coach schedules are flexible, with hours ranging between 5-25 hours per week, depending on Coach availability and number of classes. Pay is $15 per hour, including round-trip travel from chapter office to local class site, set-up, class instruction, clean-up, and school pickup travel or school travel time, where required. After-School Coaches are paid for attending required training sessions.
