Disney, Lucasfilm and FIRST to Inspire the Next Generation of Heroes and Innovators

Lucasfilm and parent company Disney, and the global K–12 nonprofit organization FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) are working together to inspire the next generation of heroes and innovators through the Star Wars: Force for Change philanthropic initiative. On Saturday, April 13, during Star Wars Celebration in Chicago, it was announced that Disney and Lucasfilm are providing a $1.5 million donation, in-kind and mentorship resources to help expand access to FIRST programs for more students globally, with a focus on underserved communities.

Star Wars has always inspired young people to look past what is and imagine a world beyond,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm. “It is crucial that we pass on the importance of science and technology to young people—they will be the ones who will have to confront the global challenges that lie ahead. To support this effort, Lucasfilm and Disney are teaming up with FIRST to bring learning opportunities and d programs in more than 100 countries around the world.

Founded in 1989, FIRST designs accessible, innovative programs to build self-confidence, knowledge and life skills while motivating young people to pursue opportunities in science, technology and engineering and become well-rounded, community focused leaders of the future. Over the past two decades, the nonprofit has inspired millions of students who have participated in team-based, mentor-guided programs in more than 100 countries around the world.

“Disney has been a long-time supporter of FIRST, providing mentorship, support and even hosting our FIRST Championship event over the years,” said Donald E. Bossi, president of FIRST. “This is an incredible opportunity to bring together world-class Star Wars storytellers and engineers, their passionate fans and the innovative, inspirational community of FIRST to expand access to our programs and raise a generation of global STEM citizens.”

To spread awareness of FIRST, Star Wars: Force for Change announced a Twitter sweepstakes that continues through April 22 (at 11:59 p.m. PDT). Visit StarWars.com.FFCsweeps for additional information.
