Volunteering for a Pennsylvania FIRST Tech Challenge Event

We use the FIRST Event Volunteer Registration system for all of our events. Volunteering for an event is one of the options on your personal FIRST Dashboard on the http://www.firstinspires.org website.

To access the FIRST Event Volunteer Registration system:

  • Browse to http://www.firstinspires.org
  • Click Log In in the upper right hand corner
    • If you already have a FIRST account, enter your FIRST username and password, and click LOG IN
    • If you do not have a FIRST account, click Register in the upper right hand corner, then fill out the account form
  • Once on your personal DASHBOARD,

To narrow the available events to Pennsylvania FTC events, under Event Filters select FTCUnited States, Pennsylvania, optionally enter dates and/or event name information, and then click APPLY FILTERS. Select an event on the right hand side and click Volunteer. Follow the prompts to select the roles you are interested in.

https://www.firstinspires.org/resource-library/volunteer/general-volunteer-resources has several good resources, including a Volunteer Registration User Guide if you have further questions about the Volunteer Registration system.

Youth Protection

Pennsylvania FIRST Robotics strives to provide a safe environment for students at our events. As part of this effort, volunteers are required to follow both Pennsylvania Child Protection laws and FIRST’s Youth Protection policies. See our Youth Protection page for full details. If you have any questions, please contact us at ftc.volunteers@pennfirst.org
