• Volunteers Needed at FRC Regionals in CA

    FIRST is truly a volunteer driven organization and with 6 Regional FIRST Robotics Competitions in California, we are in need of over 600 Volunteers in the upcoming months.

    “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?'” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

    What it takes to be a Volunteer:
    The skills that volunteers bring are the very skills that they use in their everyday lives and jobs. FIRST volunteers are women and men of every age and occupation. Whether you have technical or non-technical expertise, you like fast paced actions or helping behind the scenes – there is a volunteer role suited to your unique interest.

    Most Regional Competitions take place Thursday through Saturday and require a 1-4 day volunteer commitment.  To see what role you might be best suited for, please see this description of positions.

    Take the first step:
    If you are ready to sign up, please register in our Volunteer Information and Matching System (VIMS).

    If you are interested in learning more, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator for the Regional Competition that you are interested in.


    We hope you’ll consider joining our community of over 120,000 FIRST volunteers.   You’re sure to find a network of like-minded, dedicated individuals and a sense of camaraderie, excitement, and joy.
