There are numerous way for you to join the fun. FIRSTrelies on the help of volunteers to support all of our programs, assist at our events and competitions and plan for our future. From administrative help and writers to field attendants and media relations, our volunteers have a broad spectrum of talents. Our programs, operations and competitions don't happen without hundreds of people just like you.
FIRST is dedicated to promoting safety, and security, for participants, volunteers, and staff who attend FIRST events. The procedures we have established protect you as a volunteer, and FIRST as an organization.
Age requirements for volunteers:
- Event volunteers must be at least 13 years of age, however, some events set a higher minimum age requirement.
- Under 18 years of age, parent/guardian permission is required to apply.
We ask Maryland volunteers to indicate their interest through the Maryland FIRST Event Volunteer Interest Form. You will then be directed to the FIRST Volunteer Information and Matching System to provide more detailed information and select your volunteer preferences and events.
