Grads & Postdocs: Become a STEM Mentor

The Academy's Afterschool STEM Mentoring Program is now accepting applications for the Fall 2014 semester. The program will train eligible graduate students and postdoctoral fellows engaged in STEM fields to teach hands-on science enrichment courses to middle school students in afterschool programs at organizations like the YMCA and the Boys and Girls Clubs. Mentor placements are available in New York City, Syracuse, Oswego, Utica, Albany, Stony Brook, NY, and Newark, NJ.

Mentors can choose to teach a life sciences or computing/physical sciences curriculum and can receive an Academy Fellow Teaching Credential for completing a semester of teaching and training.

Deadline for Fall 2014 semester is August 15. For more information or to submit an application, visit www.nyas.org/AfterschoolProgram.
