For some former FLL members – volunteering is more than just fun.
When I asked some FLL alumni why they continue to volunteer at FLL events, I figured they would say “because it’s fun”.
Their answers surprised me.
For them, beyond enjoyment, it is also about making sure that the younger students are keeping FLL standards high.
Here’s some of what they told me:
“I want to make sure these youngsters are going to do a good job filling our shoes!”
“I do it to keep up the tradition, and to continue the legacy of FIRST.”
” I want Gracious Professionalism to matter, and want to make sure that these new FLL teams keep the standards high.”
” We can be good role models for the younger kids.”
Way to go FIRST.
