The Afterschool STEM Mentoring Program (ASMP) at the New York Academy of Sciences recruits undergraduate and graduate students, postdocs, and STEM professionals to mentor elementary and middle school students at selected afterschool and summer program sites in underserved communities throughout New York City. Mentors receive training in STEM curriculum as well as youth development and will work in pairs to implement mentoring sessions. Mentors who complete the program receive a stipend, travel reimbursement, and complimentary 1-year membership to The New York Academy of Sciences.

If accepted, mentors will be paired and assigned to teach at a selected summer program site one to three days a week for 45-60 minutes per visit, between July 8 - August 30. Program time is flexible. Mentors and their partners will work with summer program directors to determine the weekly session time.
