YOUTH PROTECTION CONCERNS can encompass a wide variety of one-time or ongoing issues such as suspected abuse, bullying, harassment, discrimination, questionable behavior or comments by adult volunteers, conflicts among volunteers or issues that haven’t been resolved by local leadership.
MEDICAL INCIDENT: All physical injuries/illnesses, however, slight, taking place at a FIRST® official event must be reported to FIRST Headquarters. Physical injuries/illnesses that take place during a Team’s activities, not at an event, need only be reported if the injury is related to FIRST game materials, FIRST game design, or FIRST rules. Names may be removed if privacy regulations require it.
OTHER: If you are unsure where a concern falls , we encourage you to make a report under “Other” and we will ensure that your report gets to the appropriate department to be addressed.
Someone from FIRST will review reports and contact reporters, as appropriate/necessary, to set up time to discuss the issue. You may also submit reports by email or phone using the contact information below.
