FIRST maintains important national Alliance relationships with a network of organizations, corporations, foundations, institutions, colleges and universities, and others that are committed to sustaining key programs that ignite young minds and advocate STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). These relationships help increase FIRST visibility and provide valuable resources.
At the state/local level, Alliances can have a significant impact in the community by creating more teams, engaging more Mentors, and reaching out to more students. FIRST Alliances:
- advocate and promote career opportunities in STEM in grades K-12;
- look to build on existing STEM related programs; and
- seek ways to engage their memberships in FIRST Mentor/Coach opportunities as a means of workforce development, increased community involvement, and encouraging their employees to give back to the communities
Is your group interested in an Alliance?
FIRST welcomes the opportunity to develop new, mutually beneficial relationships with groups that share our vision. FIRST can help build on your group’s existing programs or collaborate on new initiatives that promote science and technology for young people.
