What is a STEM Coach?

Community-minded STEM advocates

Do you believe that every child should have access to quality STEM learning opportunities? We do too!

As a Coach you'll simply play the OASIS videos and follow along as the video instructor teaches the class and directs the coaches (that's you) to facilitate the in-class, hands-on activities.

All the materials you need will be shipped/delivered to the organization and ready for your first session. When you're done with the 4 week lab, you'll simply drop off the kit at the nearest FedEx and that's it!

You'll receive a stipend for your efforts! 

No long-term commitments required. Pick up as many (or as few) labs as you wish. 

You'll be a...

MENTOR

Connect with youth in underserved communities and serve as a positive role model for youth to emulate. 

EDUCATOR

Help to educate the next generation of technologists and leaders by facilitating STEM labs that focus on the emerging technologies that will impact their future.

COMMUNITY BUILDER

The work you do will serve to build the technology leaders of tomorrow who will in turn create opportunities for their own communities.

INSPIRATION

Your efforts will inspire the youth to also serve their communities by giving of their time, effort, and skills in meaningful ways.
Join the Village!
Everyone has heard the adage “It takes a village to raise a child.” With OASIS Labs, we're gathering, empowering, and deploying that village! Here at OASIS we leverage the power of the village (and technology) to expose youth to the wonders of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) in grades K-8.

With OASIS, we're building "Wakanda Now" by introducing youth to the emerging technologies of today to inspire them to create the future of tomorrow.

APPLY

Fill out a short interest form and we'll contact you with next steps. After a short video interview, where we'll get to know each other, we'll let you know if you're approved to be a Coach.

ACCEPT

When we secure engagements with youth organizations, we send out the schedule to all the approved coaches in the relevant city and whoever is available can respond. Accept engagements at your own discretion!

COACH

We'll then pair a Coach with the organization! Once you're scheduled, you simply show up, get the materials, and facilitate the lab! No STEM knowledge is required, only a desire to empower youth!
