Afterschool STEM Mentoring Program (ASMP)ESF Science Corps
Created in partnership with SUNY-ESF and the New York Academy of Sciences, the Afterschool STEM Mentoring Program (ASMP) recruits qualified undergraduate and graduate students to lead weekly after-school sessions at high-need Syracuse city schools and local community organizations.
At select city schools, mentors will work in groups to strengthen student involvement in science fairs and STEM fields.
At select community organizations, mentors will be leading science clubs, running hands-on activities.
Who can apply?
STEM undergraduate and graduate students interested in teaching science to grades 4-8.
What are the benefits of becoming a mentor?
- The opportunity to make a difference in a disadvantaged community, inspiring curiosity and excitement about science
- Hands-on experience in teaching and youth development
- Modest stipend
How much time is involved?
Mentors complete a one-day training session and a short online tutorial on youth development and teaching. Mentors will then work with each site to schedule weekly mentoring sessions at a time that suits the mentor’s schedule. (Some travel is required, but program partners will be matched by proximity.)
Mentors will lead weekly, one-hour sessions from March until the end of the semester in May.
