Volunteer at Events
Volunteers make up 99.9% of the FIRST workforce. Last year, over 150,000 volunteers worldwide gave over 10 million hours in over 80 countries – covering a wide range of roles across the FIRST Progression of Programs. Our mission to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders and innovators, by engaging them in exciting Mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership would not be a success without the generous, boundless energy of our highly dedicated volunteer family.
There are many volunteer roles available for our events, including (but certainly not limited to):
Project, Core Values, and Robot Design Judges
Robot Game Referees
Judging Queuers or Assistants
Robot Inspectors and Field Managers
