FIRST AmeriCorps Program

The FIRST® AmeriCorps Program seeks to expand the vision of FIRST by working in underserved areas: lower socio-economic communities, rural areas, and areas that have little to no support or resources to be able to easily access STEM initiatives. FIRST AmeriCorps members serve in a part-time capacity in schools and community settings that are participating in FIRST. FIRST AmeriCorps members support the expansion of the FIRST mission through coaching and mentoring, program support, and school district support.

FIRST AmeriCorps members could be part-time educators, FIRST alumni, or graduate students in STEM or education fields. The program provides a bi-weekly stipend, an AmeriCorps education award, professional development, possible loan deferment and interest forbearance for qualified individuals, and access to the FIRST network. The 2023-2024 FIRST AmeriCorps term begins in August 2023 and will conclude in June 2024.
