FIRST Mentor Network: Matching Mentors with Teams for Success

Nov 29, 2022 Written by Natalie Turcotte, Sr. Manager, Systems and Training




As teams get into the swing of the season, they might need additional help and expertise. The FIRST® Mentor Network sponsored by NI is here to help.  The community platform provides new and returning FIRST teams access to passionate, engaged mentors, while giving mentors the opportunity to use their unique skill sets and have meaningful involvement with one or more teams. The platform is available to participants in the US and Canada*.

Mentors are ready to help with in-person or remote mentoring and cover a variety of skill sets, both technical and non-technical. Whether you need a little help or a lot, there are over 800 mentors waiting to help. To get started, have your lead mentor create a post on the FIRST Dashboard and build your team’s profile. Your lead mentor can seek out and communicate with candidates to find the best fit. Create your team profile today!

*FIRST Mentor Network is only available to teams in U.S.A and Canada. All participants of the FIRST Mentor Network must be at least 18 years old and complete FIRST Youth Protection screening.
