The Center for Recruitment and Retention of Mathematics Teachers is honored to receive a grant from the Arizona's Governor's Office for Youth, Faith, and Family.  The grant is an AmeriCorps grant called STEMM (Student Thinking Enrichment through Mathematics Mentors). 

Our goal is to provide mathematics mentoring and tutoring to Arizona school children, especially in communities underrepresented in STEM. 

Our AmeriCorps members include University of Arizona students, Pima Community College students, and High School seniors serving in their own communities. 

Each member will serve from 100-900 hours of service, and they will receive a living stipend during their service. Members will also earn an educational award for the successful completion of their service commitment. 

-More than 1000 students are impacted by the AmeriCorps members.

Members will receive targeted training in mentoring and tutoring mathematics. UArizona students will earn 1 credit in mathematics. Training occurs on Wednesdays from 4:00 - 4:50 P.M.
