Launched in August 2017 in Philadelphia and Camden, TechServ Scholars AmeriCorps Program is an innovative, community-based service and education pre-apprenticeship program that prepares young adults (ages 17-24) for STEM careers while they serve as \"STEM ambassadors\" in their communities. AmeriCorps members, or \"TechServ Scholars\", provide STEM enrichment activities to 5th-12th-grade students in school and in community-based out-of-school time programs.This initiative addresses two issues affecting our region- the digital literacy and STEM skills divide, and the lack of access to career pathways in the STEM and IT sectors for youth specifically coming from high poverty neighborhoods. Each TechServ Scholar is matched with a caring adult mentor who assists them in gaining STEM and IT skills, while simultaneously developing customer service, project management, problem-solving and leadership skills.
