FIRSTÔôç Alumni and Robotics at CWRU

CWRU's official FIRST® Alumni Group


Our Mission

To "pay it forward" by fostering inspiration, leadership, professional and personal development, the FIRSTÔôç Core Values, and Gracious ProfessionalismÔôç among FIRSTÔôç students and alumni of all backgrounds through education, mentorship, and volunteerism.

(And have fun while doing it!)


We connect members of FAR@CWRU to mentorship opportunities with Cleveland area teams and volunteer opportunities at official and unofficial competitions in the Cleveland area, allowing our members to pay it forward! Through our organization, our members can pass on their experiences, connect with other like-minded FIRSTÔôç Alumni, and continue to grow as the leaders that FIRSTÔôç helped start them off to be! FAR@CWRU also engages in member-led projects, like constructing a wood practice field each season for local teams to use.


Our ultimate goal is to carry on FIRST's mission: "to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders and innovators, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership." We hope to inspire young people from all walks of life to help solve our greatest scientific, technological, and social challenges, and give them tools to help them do so.

We also hope to be a place where FIRSTÔôç Alumni can continue being involved in FIRSTÔôç and build networks with other Alumni. Come hang out with us at a General Body or Executive Board meeting!
