Experience Camp Courage

The First Responders Society is an incorporated non-profit company established by firefighter Andréa Speranza, in January 2006, for the purpose of introducing young women and gender-diverse youth aged 15- 18 to careers as first responders; primarily paramedics, police officers, and firefighters.

The ultimate goal is that the youth will leave with a sense of empowerment and the confidence to believe that they can achieve any goal, career or dream they desire.

You have what it takes, join us in 2023 for the experience of your life!

The ultimate goal is that young women and gender-diverse youth will leave with a sense of empowerment and the confidence to believe that they can achieve any goal, career or dream they desire.
