We are STEM professionals providing high quality education to close achievement gaps for students in low income communities.

Train to Teach: The Impact of EnCorps

To address the STEM teacher shortage, EnCorps has been working earnestly since 2007 to recruit the best and brightest science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) professionals to teaching, providing meaningful opportunities to impact students in low-income communities. We believe all students deserve access to a great STEM teacher, a great STEM education and all the opportunities that those can provide. We’re here to address the conditions limiting under-resourced student opportunities.

EnCorps Fellows, who become EnCorps STEM Teachers in under-resourced schools, are connecting students to real-world math and science career and economic opportunities, preparing the STEM workforce pipeline, and transforming public education statewide.


The EnCorps Fellowship is an innovative, long-term solution to enduring STEM opportunity, access, and literacy gaps disproportionately limiting low income, under-resourced, and minority student opportunities. 


STEM professionals, when thoroughly prepared, are uniquely positioned to meaningfully utilize their talent and real-world expertise as EnCorps STEM Teachers to deliver an authentic, rigorous, and relevant STEM education to the students who need it most. 


The EnCorps STEM Teachers Fellowship recruits, selects, develops and supports the best and brightest STEM professionals and military veterans, as an innovative, long-term solution to the shortage of high quality, impactful educators for students in under-resourced schools. 

“EnCorps wants to provide a good math and science teacher for every single student in America.”
-Sherry Lansing

Help us to continue to deliver on a social promise of equality and opportunity for all students.
