New England Science & Sailing Foundation (NESS) seeks ten AmeriCorps Adventure STEM Educators to join the national movement of 80,000 Americans who choose to serve in communities that need it most. Adventure STEM Educators will implement our AmeriCorps program, in partnership with the New London Public School District (NLPS). The Adventure STEM Educators will help impact young people’s lives by providing opportunities for transformational experiences and personal growth through integration of NESS’s STEM-based adventure education program with school curriculum. NESS SEA (STEM Education Ambassadors) AmeriCorps Members will become an integral part of the NLPS through a common vision of improved student performance and achievement.
These full-time, 12-month AmeriCorps Adventure STEM Educators will help develop and implement NESS’s STEM-based adventure education curriculum. This is a great opportunity for a passionate, motivated individual to be an integral part of a vibrant, growing organization while at the same time serving underserved students through the AmeriCorps national service model. Programs include both academic year and summer classes for students in elementary through high school with an emphasis on students at the STEM Magnet Middle School. You must be motivated, able to work within a team as well as on your own, have proven skills working with children, and have a strong desire to work with underserved children.
