Event Volunteers

FIRST® hosts more than 3,600 events around the globe a year. These events are made possible through the support of event volunteers who work alongside people passionate about the mission of FIRST running seasonal events at the local, regional, and national levels.

Technical and non-technical event volunteer roles are available to support FIRST® Programs. Learn more about each individual program here:


Join 250,000 people around the world preparing a new generation of young people for the future through engaging, hands-on robotics programs. Volunteering with FIRST is an amazing opportunity for you to be energized, feel fulfilled, and have FUN. Reach out to FIRST partners near you to get involved and look for events near you.

As an event volunteer you will:

  • Receive general FIRST training and training for your volunteer role. 
  • Have access to certificates of volunteerism and other recognition items. 
  • Empower students to be good global citizens who understand that they can use their collective skills to make a positive impact in one person’s life, in their community, and even the world.  
  • ​Join a community of like-minded individuals that support FIRST programs.


No matter your availability and the level you want to be involved in, there is a role for you. Some roles require minimal time commitment with succinct day-of preparation. Other roles require pre-event training and longer participation on event days. Available volunteer positions depend on the program. Check them out below:
