MissionWe are STEM professionals providing high quality education to close achievement gaps for student in low income communities.
Our vision is that all students, regardless of socioeconomic status, have a strong STEM foundation to help them navigate and be successful in an increasingly complex world.
What We DoEnduring STEM achievement gaps continue to disproportionately limit opportunities for low income students and students of color. STEM professionals are uniquely positioned to utilize their real-world expertise to deliver an authentic and relevant education to the students who can benefit most.
The EnCorps STEM Teachers Fellowship recruits, prepares and supports career-changing and retiring STEM professionals, as an innovative, long-term solution to the shortage of high quality, impactful educators for under-resourced students in high need communities.
EnCorps has recruited, selected and supported 1300+ STEM professionals making the transition to K-12 teaching and impacts 35,000+ underserved students annually. EnCorps partners with public schools and charter management organizations to place STEM experts as guest teachers and full-time credentialed instructions in math, science and Career and Technical Education (CTE) subjects.
In recognition of our impact on students and the educational system at large, EnCorps received the US2020 STEM Mentoring Award (2016), the Carl and Roberta Deutsch Foundation HALO Award (2018), and the US 2020 Excellence in Public/Private Partnership (2019). In recognition of our unique approach and innovative work, we have received the Annenberg Challenge for Innovation in Technology Award (2017), and the Silicon Valley Education Foundation STEM Innovation Award (2017), and was a Semifinalist for the Drucker Prize (2018), which recognizes nonprofit innovation.
