EnCorps STEM Teachers Program

Keith Stolzenbach

About EnCorps

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 high needs schools.

STEM Teaching Fellowship

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. STEM Teaching Fellows explore the process to become a teacher within 1-3 years with the support of EnCorps and NYAS training, guest teaching field experience, teacher certification guidance, EnCorps cohort of peers and the EnCorps network of schools. When you become an EnCorps Fellow, you will provide access to quality education within low income schools, supporting students who need your mentorship the most.

Teaching Fellowship details:

  • EnCorps will place you in a local partner school for 1 semester where you will spend 2-5 hours per week as a volunteer Guest Teacher
  • Fellows train online/on-demand and at 3 in-person cohort events each year by participating in enhanced skills preparation workshops
  • Fellows receive extensive support and mentoring from the EnCorps staff, their cohort, and EnCorps’ network of schools
  • With the help of EnCorps, you will explore a transition to teaching and if desired, your unique timeline to become a paid teacher, in as little as 9 months, or 3 years depending on your personal goals
  • After guest teaching and training, Fellows may then choose to teach in a charter school without certification or district school with certification. They can earn their teaching certification from a university partner over the course of 12-24 months.

EnCorps’ Diversity Statement

At EnCorps, we challenge current educational inequalities by connecting high needs schools with high quality STEM educators to eliminate the systemic injustice preventing children of color from entering the future STEM workforce. By recruiting, training and supporting diverse and committed STEM professionals to volunteer and teach in communities most impacted by oppressive systems, we are able to provide opportunities and access to quality STEM education. We will continue to create learning opportunities that challenge assumptions and push our team to transform practices that better serve students in the communities we serve.

Not interested in teaching?

Become a volunteer STEMx Math Tutor ( https://encorps.org/volunteer-programs ) or a Scientist-in-Residence ( www.nyas.org/sir ).

STEMx Tutors virtually support and tutor a middle school student in math for 2 hours per week and are supported with EnCorps training and network. The Scientist-in-Residence (SiR) program matches scientists with NYC public school teachers to bring scientific inquiry to life in the classroom. By combining their content and pedagogical expertise, each scientist-teacher pair will develop and implement a year-long project that prepares students to engage in authentic research and spark their interest in STEM learning.
