Use the unique capabilities of after-school to provide career exposure and practicum experience to at least 30 STEM teachers of color and offer professional development to 35 school-day and 150 afterschool educators to rethink how STEM is taught, make more time for high-quality learning experiences, and promote collaboration across formal and informal STEM settings.

We intend to collaborate with organizations offering complimentary professional development and seek input and program feedback from community-members and participants. Further, we seek to elevate the role afterschool educators play, and the possibilities they hold for diversifying and improving the STEM teaching field.
