Become a Mentor/Team Leader

If you are interested in becoming a FIRST mentor, we recommend visiting the FIRST Website to find out which events are in your area. Attendance is free and you will be able to see a competition first-hand and can meet teams from your area.

Rookie teams especially benefit from strong professional mentoring and will welcome additional support. FIRST has prepared a Mentoring Guide to introduce you to the mentoring philosophy, goals and process, and to outline the tools you will need to be a successful mentor.

There are several programs for which you can become a mentor, read below to find out more:
