What Our Volunteers Say

“The FIRST organization is a world class operation, filled with wonderful people, following a great vision, and is the best investment in time (and our future) one can make. Being a part of FIRST Tech Challenge – West (or FTC West) means working in a community that cares for the future, interacting with youth and adult mentors who inspire each other and thrive on growing to become a better people. I cannot think of a more rewarding, inspiring and fruitful way to give my time to our youth, and befriend like-minded adult leaders. If you volunteer and are open to truly see what is happening among the individuals, across the teams, throughout the events and within the FIRST Organization, your life and outlook will be positively changed.”
