For us, the game is not the prize. It’s the changes FIRST brings about in kids, like heightened self-esteem, learning how to collaborate, and the positive feelings that come with being part of a team — a team that consistently helps others regardless of their own circumstances. Our teens learn valuable technical skills that can help them build a future for themselves. More importantly, they learn perseverance and community-based problem solving — the skills that will prepare them for a full life.
