The FIRST program is a great vehicle for pulling kids together and inspiring them to build their own brand of competence. It’s a launch pad for the future of youth everywhere. FIRST breaks the mold for what students think they can do, opening their eyes and changing their lives. One hundred percent of our FIRST students have gone on to college, receiving some sort of scholarship.
