The EnCorps STEM Teachers Program recruits, transitions, and supports experienced professionals and military veterans in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields to teachers and tutors who deliver an excellent STEM education to all children in disadvantaged communities.
We envision a world where:
- All children will learn to become problem solvers, innovators and creators
- STEM professionals are regularly and actively engaged in the project of public education
- Students never need to ask why they are learning math and science or how it could be useful to them
- Populations who are currently under-represented in STEM professions will no longer be so
The EnCorps STEM Teachers Program helps skilled professionals in STEM fields who are interested in exploring a career transition to teaching 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 professoinals and leaders.
