Elevating Girls & Young Women in STEM

Thanks for checking us out on SWE

At FIRST®, we help transform the future of students by teaching team-building and mutual respect, helping them master STEM knowledge, instilling self-confidence and developing leadership and life skills that are essential to their success in the 21st century.

We’re intentional in our work to focus on girls and other underrepresented and underserved youth. Our goal is to provide greater access to our programs as well as train coaches, mentors and volunteers on how to create equity and inclusive practices on teams.

"FIRST gave me the skills and confidence to help change lives in my community. As a result, I was inspired to create a tech camp to help close the gender gap in engineering and introduce more girls to computer science." − Christina L., FIRST Alumna
