What is an Upstate NY FIRST Alumnus?

An Upstate NY FIRST Alumnus is anyone that graduated from a FIRST Program within the Upstate New York region.  An alumnus can also be a FIRST Alumnus that has moved anywhere within Upstate NY or a volunteer that has participated for more than 3 years and wants to be a part of the alumni association.

Our goal is to help our alumni connect with other FIRST alumni, FIRST teams and students, as well as give them the tools to succeed in today’s global economy.

Alumni are eligible to receive invitations to alumni events, information about upcoming events, volunteer opportunities, and local companies and internship postings.


Are you an alumnus of a FIRST Team? Then check out this survey.

We are working towards building an Upstate New York Alumni database to help connect you with unique opportunities just for alumni!

Share Your Stories

We’re looking to collect stories from alumni, students, mentors, volunteers, and families on how FIRST has made an impact on your lives. If you have a favorite story from your years involved in FIRST, please share them with us.

In honor of holding Finger Lakes Regional for the past 15 years, we want to celebrate by telling the stories of the impact FIRST has had no only on you, but from the alumni, the families that have helped out at every level, stories from your teachers and mentors, and the stories from the volunteers that have helped out year after year.
