Across the country, millions of students lack the resources to learn about STEM and computer science. Our non-profit organization, Robotics for All, strives to provide this vital area of education to underprivileged students through engaging online classes.
Robotics for All is seeking volunteers to teach virtual computer science classes. As a volunteer teacher, you will earn service hours while developing critical communication, teaching, and leadership skills, all of which will assist you in varying areas of interest. These class sessions will run for eight weeks, and have a time commitment of three hours per week. Lead Instructors will also be offered a $100 stipend for each class that they teach.
If you are interested in joining our team, please read the full position description and apply with the following link: https://www.roboticsforall.net/overview-of-positions.html A subset of applicants will be invited to interviews prior to acceptance.
We look forward to engineering the future with you!
Mission: Robotics for All aims to inspire the next generation of students and volunteers to achieve their full potential, regardless of their background. Robotics for All strives to provide equitable educational opportunities to students of all backgrounds, particularly low income and under-represented students, with an emphasis on teaching the fields of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). The goal is to reduce the opportunity gap, allowing students to gain beneficial skills for the rest of their academic and professional careers. We believe that it is important for students to have access to a quality STEM education, regardless of socio-economic status.
Founded in April 2017 and officially incorporated in July 2018, Robotics for All aims to bridge close the opportunity gap by providing equitable educational opportunities to students of all backgrounds, particularly underrepresented and underserved students. Our organization previously only provided in-person classes. In July 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we transitioned our program to an online setting and experienced breakneck growth. In just 5 months, we taught the same number of students as we did in our first 3 years of operations. Our current online classes are for K-8 grader and teach a variety of platforms including Code.org, Scratch, and Python.
Robotics for All is volunteer-based, with currently over 100 volunteers at the time of writing. Our volunteers hail from dozens of states across the United States and several other countries. We encourage you to apply to join our growing community of volunteers.

Volunteers are expected to commit for the duration of an eight-week long session, with approximately three hours of work per week (two one hour-long synchronous classes, reviewing homework and answering student questions in between).
All volunteers over the age of 18 will be background checked. While international volunteers will be considered, please keep in mind that a majority of our students will likely come from the United States so there may difficulties with time zones.
