SwingPals Volunteers play a critical role in our program. Opportunities include: volunteer coaches; safety coaches; bus drivers; and a multitude of other functions, to help SwingPals deliver on its mission and vision. As Justin says, without our volunteers, SwingPals simply would not exist.
"My experience as a SwingPals coach thus far has been extremely positive. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with the students, engaging them to learn about where they grew up, what they're interested in, what they're doing in school, and how they spend their free time. It is as much an escape from the daily grind for me as it is for them.

"So far I’ve been moved and gratified by the progress Elijah and I have made together! He trusts me and opens up to me much more than at the start. And he’s noticeably more engaged, more focused. He works hard at golf and shows great potential. And most important, in the SwingPals program, he’s learning the tools that will help him reach his potential, not just in golf but in school and all aspects of life. I’m proud to be a part of such a program and to be learning these valuable skills myself!”

“I am retired and in my early sixties. Giving back was something I promised I would do given the success my family has had over the years. Little did I know how meaningful this program is to kids who have never walked on a golf course or have had the opportunity to hold a golf club. Yet, it's through SwingPals that these kids feel how people really do care about them in a safe environment. Little did I know how meaningful giving back could mean.”

“Having the opportunity to volunteer with the Swing Pals organization and work with a great group of kids has in itself been very rewarding. Thank you Swing Pals for the providing the platform for personal growth not just for the teenagers, but for the volunteers as well.”
