Mission Statement

We have bridged EnCorps STEM Teacher program and California Volunteers' AmeriCorps to create AmeriCorps STEM Expert Tutors. The AmeriCorps STEM Expert Tutors program focuses on improving math and science literacy for low-income high school students in Los Angeles County; our five AmeriCorps member partner school sites are located in Huntington Park, South Central/Watts, and Boyle Heights. Many Los Angeles County high school students are not meeting proficiency standards in math and science subjects. Low STEM literacy limits students' opportunities to pursue college and careers in the 21st century. Our mission is to empower all students through equitable learning opportunities with our STEM expert tutors.

Description

The AmeriCorps STEM Expert Tutors program will focus on improving math and science literacy for low-income high school students in Los Angeles county. Our tutors will work in five high-needs AmeriCorps member placement sites located in Huntington Park, South Central/Watts, and Boyle Heights. Many Los Angeles County high school students are not meeting proficiency standards in math and science subjects. Low-income students are a particularly vulnerable population, as demonstrated in performance gaps. Low STEM literacy limits students' opportunities to pursue college and careers in the 21st century. AmeriCorps STEM Expert Tutors will provide academic assistance to low-income high school students, currently underperforming in math and science subjects. Our Expert Tutors will provide students with access to education that will help them break the cycle of poverty, pursue higher education and secure jobs in the 21st century.
