No FIRST team is complete without mentors and coaches. Mentors and coaches help guide the team towards success. They provide their knowledge to the students so the students can learn and grow. With their experience in the professional world, mentors teach the students how to communicate with sponsors and effectively use their time in the workshop.

For more information about mentors, below are a YouTube video and a link from the FIRST website.
