College Programs

CalTeach:
As a component of the University of California's Science and Math Initiative (SMI), CalTeach addresses the critical need for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) undergraduate teacher preparation. Designed to address California's science and mathematics teacher shortage, this innovative program recruits and prepares mathematics and science majors for future teaching careers by providing special coursework and field experiences in K-12 schools while they complete their undergraduate degrees.  

Post-Graduation Programs

Teach For America is growing the movement of leaders who work to ensure that kids growing up in poverty get an excellent education. We recruit a diverse group of leaders with a record of achievement who work to expand educational opportunity, starting by teaching for two years in a low-income community.
