The BR STEM Network is a collaborative partnership among community partners that is helping inspire and prepare all BR youth to succeed, lead and innovate in STEM fields and in any career path they chose. Led by the Foundation for East Baton Rouge School System and representatives from the East Baton Rouge Parish School System, the local higher education system, community organizations, employers and STEM institutions, BR STEM is dedicated to addressing STEM at all ages throughout their lives and in all places - in schools, out-of-school time, professional development, work-based learning, mentoring and volunteering, and events.
The BR STEM Network unites community partners to help engage, inform, and inspire all Baton Rouge youth to innovate, lead, and most importantly, succeed in STEM fields and beyond.

The purpose of the STEM Teaching Fellows is to establish and support a cadre of “STEM Teaching Fellows” who, armed with content knowledge, innovative teaching strategies, and an entrepreneurial spirit, can support their colleagues and transform EBRPSS schools into institutions of innovative STEM teaching and learning. The STEM Teaching Fellows program features year-round professional development tailored to the needs and interests of the participants and collaborative resource-building and sharing activities.
Our AmeriCorps VISTAs continue to be an invaluable asset to the work we do in our STEM mentoring programs. Currently, we have openings for our Summer Associate program, as well as year-long service members.
