The success of FIRST Tech Challenge relies on the tireless dedication of our amazing Volunteers. There are many opportunities for you to volunteer with FTC, from mentoring a Team to serving at events. Whether you want to give a little time or a lot, in FTC, there's a role for you to play!
All FTC events depend on Volunteers to ensure student participants have a quality experience. Needs range from technical inspectors to judges and referees, from emcees to announcers and greeters. Here's a list of typical volunteer opportunities at events.
Not technical? Not a problem. FTC is looking for volunteers who are artists, communicators and record keepers, to name a few non-technical areas of need.
To ensure our students have a safe environment to compete and learn, FIRST requires all adult Volunteers to undergo background screening. This screening is covered by FIRST and is built into the registration process. To learn more about this policy, visit the FIRST Youth Protection Program web page.
