Urban League offers career change workshops

Are you ready for a career change? Join the Urban League of Philadelphia for a presentation on E-mc2, a Temple University program for professionals looking for a career change on Thursday, April 23.

E=mc2 is a program designed to train mid-career and early retiree mathematics and science professionals as middle-grade teachers to meet Pennsylvania’s crucial need for mathematics and science teachers. It provides an accelerated path to Pennsylvania teaching certification, allowing professionals to begin the program while maintaining their current jobs.

Upon completion, the program is committed to helping you secure a teaching position in a local school district.
