Event Volunteers

Be an Event Volunteer

New York City / New Jersey FIRST events are entirely volunteer-driven. You can help with team and media registration, VIP hospitality, awards, scoring, audience and robot traffic, or be a field attendant or referee. With events all over New York City and New Jersey, it’s easy to volunteer near where you live or work.

For any positions that require prior knowledge of competition rules, FIRST will provide you with the training and appropriate learning materials in advance.

FIRST LEGO League Tournaments

FIRST LEGO League Tournaments are family-oriented, fun-filled festivals at which teams of 9-14 year olds demonstrate their technical prowess and presentation skills. Spend a Saturday or Sunday as a volunteer. FLL Tournaments take place all over New York City and New Jersey.

FIRST Tech Challenges

Spend a day helping run a FIRST Tech Challenge involving 20-30 high school teams engaged in the “hands-on - minds-on” process of technological innovation.

FIRST Robotics Competitions

Be part of FIRST’s “Super Bowl of Smarts.” Spend one, two, or three days in March helping to celebrate the achievements of teams of high school students working smart in science and technology.
