Become a STEM Teacher

EnCorps STEM Teachers Program

About the organization

Racial and socioeconomic achievement gaps persist in our schools today. There is a 26% or greater gap in math achievement between white students and students of color. We believe in the power of STEM to offer opportunities to students who need it most. You can change this by becoming a STEM teacher.

EnCorps STEM Teachers Program’s vision is to realize a day where all students, regardless of socioeconomic status, are inspired and prepared to pursue their dreams. Join EnCorps STEM Teachers Program as a STEMx Tutor and commit to providing quality education to the students who need your mentorship the most. As a STEMx Tutor, you will be paired with a student for two consecutive semesters. If you choose, you can be paired with more than one student.
