Each year more than 1,000 individuals give their time, energy and creativity to help bring the NYC FIRST experience to thousands of youth across the city. Volunteers are essential to making our programs possible.

NYC FIRST volunteers play a significant role in the success of the organization while demonstrating the importance of Gracious Professionalism in all times. Volunteers who support NYC FIRST Program events have the unique and exciting opportunity to watch our young participants learn, invent, cooperate and compete while having a lot of fun at the competition.

We are able to engage with volunteers who want a one-day experience, either judging or refereeing or sitting on a panel. We're also able to provide longer-term engagements, where mentors work elementary, middle or high school teams over the course of months, helping with everything from designing robots to strategizing about game play to fundraising.
