Interested in bringing STEM skills to your program, state, or region? ACRES Coaches are experienced facilitators who support participants in learning and practicing STEM skills. Coaches utilize guides online and in-person to train afterschool educators in STEM and reflective practice. As a coach you will give every participant the experience of being in a professional learning community, so that they know what it feels like to learn and grow with peers in a deeply authentic and courageous space.
ACRES coaches facilitate hands on interactions that are applied right away ensuring that staff make STEM a part of their program calendar.
As you are trained to become an ACRES coach, you will take part in a Coaches Cohort. This cohort will follow a similar model in that you will collaborate with other coaches, learn coaching skills, practice with your own group of educators, and come back together to reflect, give and receive feedback.
