Ways to Help
FIRST® is actively recruiting volunteers for the FIRST Championship. The FIRST Championship presented by Qualcomm® Incorporated is the culmination of the season’s FIRST programs, bringing together tens of thousands of students of all ages for the ultimate celebration of science and technology. The event features the FIRST® Robotics Competition Championship, the FIRST® Tech Challenge World Championship, the FIRST® LEGO® League World Festival, and the FIRST® LEGO® League Jr. World Festival Expo.
In 2018 the FIRST Championship will take place in both Houston, Texas, April 18-21 and in Detroit, Michigan, April 25-28. Volunteers are a vital component of this event with more than 1,500 volunteer roles available. Read more about volunteering with FIRST.
