FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) was founded in 1989 to inspire young people's interest and participation in science and technology. Based in Manchester, NH, the 501(c)(3) not-for-profit public charity designs accessible, innovative programs that motivate young people to pursue education and career opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math, while building self-confidence, knowledge, and life skills.
FIRST AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) members work in low-income and low-resource communities to facilitate access to FIRST STEM programs.
The VISTA program at FIRST strives to match an AmeriCorps VISTA to our field structure in support of teams within underserved communities. The FIRST AmeriCorps VISTA mission is to expand the vision of FIRST by working in areas that have been deemed underserved: lower socio-economic communities, rural areas, and areas that have little to no support or resources to be able to easily access STEM initiatives.
VISTAs work in a full-time capacity with their local Site Supervisors. VISTAs often work closely with teams in their area as general support and work to build the capacity of FIRST by focusing on impacting underserved and underrepresented populations.
We are currently recruiting FIRST VISTA Members for the following states:
- Stipend Provided
- Training Provided
