Become a Mentor

Home » Mentoring » Become a Mentor

Mentors are individuals who work with coaches and their teams to help guide the team throughout the course of the season. Your commitment level as a mentor will vary, as it is entirely up to you (as the mentor), and the program how much time you dedicate to working with the robotics team.  It may feel like you must have an engineering or an information technology background to be a mentor, but that is not the case at all.  Anyone interested in helping can be a Mentor, regardless of their profession.  Teams are looking for Mentors of all skill-sets, so your help would be greatly appreciated!  Sign up using the form at the bottom of the page.

A breakdown of what is expected from the Mentor in each program can be found here:

If you are interested in becoming a mentor, fill out the form below and we will begin looking for a robotics team that will be a good match for you.

  • We ask this because we make every effort to match you with a team close by, thereby maximizing your availability to the team and minimizing the time you spend traveling. However, it is important to note that we cannot accommodate this 100% of the time, as it all depends on the teams requesting a mentor and their location.
  • Please enter a number from 1 to 100.
    Enter in miles how far you would be willing to travel to meet with a Robotics Team.
