Happy FIRST LEGO League team member at event


You can be part of something extraordinary.

Help lift up tens of thousands of bright young minds at the ultimate celebration of STEM inspiration, FIRST® Championship.

In 2019, FIRST Championship will take place in Houston, Texas, April 17-20 and in Detroit, Michigan, April 24-27. Volunteers are a vital component of making these events a success. A culmination of the season’s FIRST programs, the FIRST Championship 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.

Volunteering with FIRST is an amazing opportunity for you to be energized, feel fulfilled and have FUN. The time you give will inspire every student participating in the FIRST Championship. We promise you’ll also be inspired when you join our community and feel the energy and excitement that our international event brings to Houston. Regardless of skill level, or time commitment, you’re a perfect fit for one of the 1500 volunteer openings available. And, when you say, “Yes, I want to help!”, you’re also helping our non-profit organization fuel its mission of changing the world – one student at a time.
