Thank You FIRST Volunteers

Our dedicated volunteers are the heart of our programs, and it is our amazing volunteer community that makes FIRST a success. Volunteers share their talents, their passions, and their time to make a difference in the lives of students all over the world.

For 30 years, FIRST volunteers have fueled the mission by inspiring millions of young people to reach for the stars. You are part of a global support system we’ve built for students who need a spark of curiosity and encouragement to launch their dreams. Together, we’re inspiring the next generation of innovators, technology leaders, and changemakers here on Earth – and beyond.

Over 255,000 FIRST volunteers fueled more than 2,900 events during the 2017-2018 season!
