Job Description

YOU HAVE STEM EXPERTISE AND WANT TO GIVE BACK
Are  you are one of many STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math)  professionals who has a desire to share your passion with younger  generations and make a difference for public school students?

STUDENTS NEED YOU
STEM  achievement and career opportunities are disproportionately limited for  youth in under-resourced school districts. The severe shortage of  high-quality teachers to improve resources and outcomes leaves  low-income and minority students particularly vulnerable. This isn't  right.

JOIN US!
The EnCorps STEM  Teachers Program empowers STEM industry experts to become exceptional  teachers, tutors, and educators. Heading into our 10th year of public  service, we are the only nonprofit in California (or the nation) that  enables STEM professionals, military veterans, and retirees to explore a  career transition to teaching or volunteer tutoring in a low risk,  highly supported way. EnCorps Fellows directly  impact the next generation of innovators, scientists and engineers, and  are uniquely positioned to transform public STEM education. EnCorps  provides comprehensive training and support as you personally engage  with students in need and explore a move into a career that truly  changes our world.

BENEFITS
-Immediate access to working with high need students
-Mentorship from EnCorps staff and a host teacher
-Exam support and credentialing guidance
-Scholarship opportunities for credentialing and professional development
-Access to networks and schools for full time teaching employment
-Robust slate of professional development webinars and in person institutes
-Cohort of peers who share ideas and best practices

Requirements

HOW TO APPLY
EnCorps is a free, highly selective Fellowship requiring:
-Residence  in an EnCorps service area (San Francisco Bay Area, Sacramento,  Stockton, Los Angeles County, Orange County, San Diego County)
-At least 3 years of full time work / research experience as a STEM industry professional
-Eligibility to work in the United States (US Citizen, Permanent Resident, Work Visa)
-An undergraduate degree with a GPA of 2.50 or higher

The  EnCorps Fellowship is a volunteer, part time opportunity for current  STEM professionals who are interested in exploring their personal role  in teaching and education. You do not need prior experience in  education, and you must not currently hold a California single subject  credential.
