Transition from industry to teaching with EnCorps (SoCal)

EnCorps STEM Teachers Program - Multiple Locations - Full time

California is experiencing a statewide teacher shortage crisis - YOU can help!

Transition your industry experience into the classroom as a middle or high school teacher. As an EnCorps STEM Teaching Fellow, you will use your leadership and unique expertise to inspire the next generation by working as a teacher in a low income school. Currently, 39% of students in California meet or exceed the math standards, however, people with skills like you, have an opportunity to change these statistics and strengthen our future STEM workforce. Just watch this video to see our impact in action:

EnCorps provides an innovative component, complementing the established credentialing process required for all California teachers; and preparing you to excel in your new career as a teacher. As an EnCorps Fellow, you will receive support from EnCorps staff as well as a cohort of your peers, as you navigate through the credentialing process and work your way towards becoming a teacher.

How the Fellowship works:

  • Fellows earn their credential from a university partner over the course of 4-14 months
  • EnCorps will place you in a local partner school for 1 semester where you will spend 2-5 hours per week as a volunteer Guest Teacher
  • Fellows train online/on-demand and at 3 in-person cohort events each year by participating in enhanced skills preparation workshops
  • Fellows receive extensive support and mentoring from the EnCorps staff, their cohort, and EnCorps’ network of schools
  • With the help of EnCorps, you will develop your unique timeline to become a credentialed, paid teacher, in as little as 9 months, or 3 years depending on your personal goals.
