The EnCorps STEM Teachers Program recruits, transitions and supports experienced science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) professionals and military veterans transitioning into education in order to ensure an excellent STEM education for under-resourced students.
We envision a world where:
- All children will learn to become problem solvers, innovators and creators
- STEM professionals are regularly and actively engaged in public education
- Students see the real-world application of math and science and how it is essential to their future
- Under-represented populations will have a strong presence in STEM professions
The EnCorps STEM Teachers Program helps skilled STEM professionals interested in exploring a career transition to teaching to become more personally involved in public education. We provide an entry point for STEM professionals to make the transition into teaching, and enable them to share their passion for math and science with younger generations. By placing STEM professionals in our most needy schools and classrooms, we are working to close the achievement and opportunity gaps, and we are cultivating a new generation of STEM professionals and leaders.
