Whatever your expertise, FIRST has a Volunteer opportunity for you. FIRST encourages Volunteers with both technical and non-technical expertise, and there’s NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED!
Help us to change lives, change our culture, and change the future! Whether you have a few weekend hours, the desire to mentor a team for a season, or want to work behind the scenes to help FIRST grow, opportunities abound for people who want to give back. Over 160,000 adult Volunteers from every walk of life give freely of their time and talents because they witness firsthand the positive impact the FIRST experience has on so many young lives.
