F.I.R.S.T. Institute Workshop Information

Every Institute participant will begin by attending a group orientation event. Each student will then select five workshops (one from each of the five domains) to complete his or her First-Generation Ambassador certification. The workshops will conclude with a group capstone event in order to celebrate certification as an official First-Generation Ambassador.
