My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for FIRST, Manchester, NH, USA
This is my 11th season as a co-coach of Mountaineer Area Robotics MARS. We enjoy competing in the Pittsburgh / Western PA tournaments. We currently mentor four teams from there. The sharing of knowledge, life skills and common bonds is outstanding in a FIRST team if the effort is put in by the coaches and mentors. Have attended 25 FIRST tournaments with my daughter and many other outstanding youth. Always a great time for them and me. Would not trade the experience for any other on a team or personal level.
We will provide mentoring and assistance to all other teams in FRC, FTC and FLL

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Retention. We lose many youth in the transition between FLL serving middle school youth and their entry to high school for FTC or FRC. Our team and great mentors are only able to support 30-40 youth per year in the HS level while touching the lives of hundreds aged 9-14. We are developing FTC teams to provide opportunities for more HS youth members in North Central WV
