Volunteers Needed at AT&T
68th Year for Annual Fundraiser
For the 68th year, the Carmel Youth Center is seeking volunteers to help at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Golf Tournament. As the tournament grows in popularity and size each year, the challenge of recruiting, managing, and transporting volunteers gets greater each year as well. This year, the CYC must staff more than 800 4-hour shifts over the six days of the tournament. Most volunteers will work in the concessions tents side-by-side with local leaders and community members who have offered their time to help the CYC for years. The work may not be glamorous, but itís fun and fast-paced, and once your shift is complete you can enjoy the event at your leisure. Generations of volunteers have considered this a great opportunity to help support local youth and also see some world-class golf, meet some favorite celebrities, and enjoy the picturesque views of the finest golf course on the planet.
This yearís AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am Golf Tournament is scheduled for Tuesday, February 5 through Sunday, February 11, 2018.
Volunteers must be at least 14 years old. We also need many volunteers who are at least 21 years old (to serve alcoholic beverages).
Work at least one 4-hour shift and youíll receive free admission to the event, a free lunch, and shuttle service to the golf courses from the Carmel Youth Center. Plus, youíll be invited to attend our AT&T Volunteer Thank You Reception in March.
This is a fun opportunity for Military personnel, college students, and high school students to earn community service credits, as required for advancement or graduation.
The concessions used to be sold out of trucks called Bingmobiles. We have many volunteers who worked in the original Bingmobiles during the 1950s and 1960s!
The CYC is a private nonprofit organization (meaning we are not government run), this is our biggest fundraiser each year and the future of the Carmel Youth Center depends on the funds we receive for successfully recruiting, transporting and managing volunteers for this event.
Of the over 200 youth centers that Bing Crosby helped open, we are one of the very last (if not the last) that continues to operate as a private nonprofit organization. The others have been closed or converted into Boys and Girls Clubs or city-operated community centers.
The Carmel Youth Center is a California non-profit organization founded in 1949 by entertainer/philanthropist Bing Crosby. Our mission is to nurture the potential of every child, to provide enrichment programming designed to enhance their social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development in a safe environment.
