When you’re a FIRST volunteer, you empower students to be future changemakers. Working side by side with FIRST participants, you inspire them to use their skills to make a positive impact on their communities and the world. Volunteering with FIRST gives you the opportunity to share your knowledge - whether technical or non-technical, learn something new, build your resume, and network with other volunteers and sponsors. If you’re looking for a fast-paced, thrilling, and inspiring environment to make a difference, there’s a spot for you as a FIRST volunteer!

FIRST Mentor Network
Now, more than ever we need to empower and foster the next generation of innovators to feel hopeful, and build a better future.
The FIRST® Mentor Network is an interactive platform allowing teams and interested mentors to easily find each other for virtual (or eventual face-to-face) mentorship. The community platform provides new and returning teams access to passionate, engaged mentors, while giving mentors the opportunity to use their unique skill sets and have meaningful involvement with one or multiple teams.
At FIRST, student safety is always a priority. Every adult must become familiar with our Youth Protection Program (YPP). Take the time to watch our videos and read our Youth Protection materials. All adult volunteers from the United States and Canada must complete background screening through our Volunteer Registration for the safety of all FIRST team members.
