The Global STEM Corps

The Global STEM Corps (GSC) is FIRST Global’s 21st century answer to a world in need of an inspired generation of young adults who are ready to tackle global challenges. Qualified GSC volunteers are part of an Advisor Team that mentors a FIRST Global national team as they build the robot. By working with students around the world as they engineer their robots, GSC volunteers help FIRST Global competitors attain all they are capable of and inspire them to pursue fulfilling, exciting, and rewarding lives through STEM.

The Higher Education Network

Through the prestigious institutions on the FIRST Global Higher Education Network Leadership Board, FIRST Global will partner with universities around the world to increase access to STEM education, further international collaboration and cooperation, and connect future innovators with institutions of higher education.

Event Volunteers

Event volunteers are the people who help make the event happen. From the fields, to the pits, to the front entrance, we can’t put on a great show without our volunteers.

Join our Unite the Globe Campaign

To help ensure that every nation is represented at the FIRST Global Challenge, we have launched our Unite the Globe Scholarship Campaign.


From purchasing materials, to sponsoring teams from underprivileged areas, to supporting the staff that bring the whole event together, your donations go toward spreading a passion for STEM among the youth of the world. FIRST Global is registered as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
