FIRST is truly a volunteer driven organization. With close to 27,000 teams in four programs worldwide, it takes a large and diverse group of volunteers to make FIRST successful; Mentors and Coaches guide the kids on their teams, Event Volunteers make the hundreds of seasonal events possible and field volunteers continue to help FIRST grow season after season. Volunteers are community leaders, employees of small businesses and large corporations, teachers, parents, university students and faculty, FIRST alumni… and YOU!
Whether you have four hours on a weekend to help, want to mentor for a length of time, have technical or non-technical expertise, there is a volunteer role suited to your unique interest.
Make a difference in the lives of young people.
Inspire and engage youth in hands-on
STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) activities.

There are various competitions that take place throughout the state. Every event requires 25 — 50 volunteers to make it a success. No expertise is required, just a passion to help our future leaders grow and succeed.
Become a FIRST volunteer and you’ll find a community of like-minded, dedicated individuals and a sense of camaraderie, excitement, and joy while working For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST).
