The Philadelphia Education Fund’s (PEF’s) Afterschool STEM Fellows Program is a professional development series designed for K-12 School District of Philadelphia staff who work in public schools and wish to take their programs from concept to execution. We seek individuals who wish to enhance an existing or create a new afterschool program, administer programs, or work directly with students. PEF’s McKinney Center for STEM Education will offer hands-on learning, peer support, and an opportunity to complete a practical Capstone Project.
