What is a FIRST Chesapeake Alumnus?

A FIRST Chesapeake Alumnus is anyone that graduated from a FIRST Program whether it is FRC or FTC in the District of Columbia, Maryland, or Virginia.  A FIRST Chesapeake alumnus can also be a FIRST Alumnus that has moved to the District of Columbia, Maryland, or Virginia and wants to be a part of the alumni association.

The goal of the FIRST Chesapeake Alumni Association 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.

FIRST Chesapeake Alumni are eligible to receive a monthly alumni newsletter, invitations to local alumni events, information about upcoming events and volunteer opportunities, and job and internship postings.



Interested in volunteering, mentoring, or planning an alumni social in your area? Please register with the alumni association and tell us so!
