Volunteer

You can be part of something extraordinary.

Volunteering with FIRST is an amazing opportunity to be energized, feel fulfilled, and have FUN. Regardless of skill level, or time commitment, we have a volunteer position available for you! When you say, “I want to volunteer!”, you’re helping our non-profit organization fuel its mission of changing the world – one student at a time.

Pre-event Volunteer Registration is now closed.
However, if you still would like to volunteer you can apply as a walk-on volunteer at the Volunteer Registration desk on Level 1 of the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston and Level 2 of the Cobo Center in Detroit.
