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.

The University of Arizona Center for Recruitment and Retention of Mathematics Teachers Student Thinking Enrichment for Mathematics Mentors AmeriCorps program, in collaboration with AZServe, Pima Prevention Partnership, UA WildCats Corps, and Senior Corps Foster Grandparent Program propose to have 75 volunteers who will host Family Game Events in Pima, Cochise, Yuma, and Santa Cruz Counties, AZ on September 11th Day of Service and Remembrance. On the September 11 Day of Service, 75  volunteers will be responsible for increasing family engagement for military, veteran, first responder families, as well as increasing community collaboration and connection in remembrance of those who sacrificed their lives in service to our country on September 11. This program will focus on the CNCS focus areas of engaging and supporting Veterans and Military Families in September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance activities and training volunteers who make a commitment for future service.
