To Apply. Please send an email indicating your interest to Rebecca Garcia president@stemk8pta.org Please email a letter explaining who you are and why you’re interested.

Additional info: This is a very important role for our community and students and is work intensive. Pay is more of a stipend to offset the huge volunteer commitment this person makes to our community. We hope that anyone that takes it on would do so as much as a labor of love as for the pay. About half the students at STEM participate in the enrichment program. Because it includes scholarships and an extremely wide variety of classes, many kids participate in the STEM enrichment program who otherwise wouldn’t participate in any extracurricular activities at all. The enrichment program coordinator works directly with many of STEM’s teachers, parents, other staff and administration. If it is your goal to get to know the STEM community, this is a great way to do so. In summary, it is a demanding, involved job, but since it impacts many STEM families, it is also very rewarding.
