Hey all, sorry this is about a year late but with college season starting back up we figured it’d be alright to start this discussion up again.
FAMNM is in a bit of a unique position in Michigan, where there are multiple FLL, FTC, and FRC official and unofficial competitions occurring nearly every weekend year round, and multitudes of teams at all levels looking for full and part time help. We focus most of our effort into being event volunteers at all levels, hosting FIRST kickoffs, workshops, and community events on campus, and mentoring the teams around us. So far it’s worked out great!
As our org grows, we’re starting to dabble a bit in partnerships with other college FIRST orgs, companies looking to get involved in FIRST or hire FIRST Alumni, and more resource-intensive efforts like mass mentoring through Ri3D and an FRC offseason. There’s always more to do, and our main focuses change every year depending on the specific passions of the org leaders. It really all depends on what your members are excited about!
