The EnCorps Teaching Fellowship for STEM Professionals
EnCorps STEM Teachers Program - Los Angeles, CA - Full time
YOU HAVE STEM EXPERTISE AND WANT TO GIVE BACK
Are you are one of many STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) professionals who has a desire to share your passion with younger generations and make a difference for public school students?
STUDENTS NEED YOU
STEM achievement and career opportunities are disproportionately limited for youth in under-resourced school districts. The severe shortage of high-quality teachers to improve resources and outcomes leaves low-income and minority students particularly vulnerable. This isn't right.
The EnCorps STEM Teachers Program empowers STEM industry experts to become exceptional teachers, tutors, and educators. Heading into our 10th year of public service, we are the only nonprofit in California (or the nation) that enables STEM professionals, military veterans, and retirees to explore a career transition to teaching or volunteer tutoring in a low risk, highly supported way.
EnCorps Fellows directly impact the next generation of innovators, scientists and engineers, and are uniquely positioned to transform public STEM education. EnCorps provides comprehensive training and support as you move into a career that truly changes our world.
