FIRST engages thousands of adult Team Mentors and Coaches volunteering with young people ages 6-18. Team Mentors and Coaches work side-by-side with our FIRST teams to build self-confidence, knowledge and life skills while motivating young people to pursue opportunities in science, technology and engineering. They have a variety of backgrounds, but all share in the FIRST commitment to inspiring in young people, their schools, and communities, an appreciation of science and technology, and how mastering these can enrich the lives of all. The time needed for a Team Mentor or Coach will vary with the program selected but generally these positions would require a 6-month commitment to team support.
