Celebrating FIRST Mentors During Mentoring Month (January 2023)

Thanks to the hard work, dedication, and passion of our outstanding FIRST® mentors, we are able to provide life-changing STEM opportunities to hundreds of thousands of students around the world each season. It is because of their commitment that we can carry out the FIRST mission of preparing kids to build a better future. FIRST mentors inspire students every single day, and they, themselves, continuously find inspiration and motivation from the very students they are mentoring.

Here's what they had to say:

 

"I get to share my knowledge with younger generations"


"I like giving back to the FIRST community and helping kids grow their interest in STEM"


"I help students build their futures"
