The Problem:

Enduring STEM achievement, access, and literacy gaps disproportionately limit low income, under-resourced, and minority student opportunities. Furthermore, there is a severe shortage of high-quality teachers to do something about it.

Our Solution:

Get involved! By becoming an EnCorps STEM Teachers Fellow (www.encorps.org), you will take the first step to expanding these opportunities and exploring your role and impact in public education. EnCorps engages STEM industry professionals and military veterans in making a transition to a career in teaching or becoming a volunteer tutor. As an EnCorps Fellow, you will directly influence and inspire today's students, who will become tomorrow's innovators, engineers and scientists.

EnCorps Fellows are STEM professionals in California who are committed to making a firsthand difference in how science and math are taught and learned in our public schools. EnCorps provides a low risk, highly supported pathway to working successfully with students in need, and can help you move into a career that can change the world. We provide unique opportunities for our Fellows, including:

  • Immediate access to working with students by tutoring or guest teaching under the mentorship of a host teacher
  • Assistance and guidance with selecting and applying to teaching credential programs. EnCorps offers scholarship funding for Fellows who wish to pursue teaching credentials.
  • Support with exams and other teacher credentialing requirements
  • Access to networks and schools as you seek full time employment as a teacher
  • Ongoing professional development via our Fall and Spring Institutes, and our Summer Residential Institute, as well as our monthly webinars and informal networking opportunities
  • A cohort of peers who are industry professionals engaging in education

EnCorps is free to our Fellows. However, the EnCorps STEM Teachers Fellowship is selective, and you must apply. In order to qualify, you must meet our pre-requisite requirements:

  1. Be fully eligible to work in the United States (US Citizen, Permanent Resident, Work Visa)
  1. Hold an undergraduate degree with a GPA of 2.50 or higher
  1. You must not already hold a current California single subject or CTE teaching credential

We accept applications online, and applications include short written responses to five question prompts.

Our application season runs from August-May 16th. All accepted candidates will begin our program in June 2016. We have a limited number of open spots and accept candidates on a rolling basis; it is in your best interest to apply early!
