CalTeach Science & Mathematics Program
Empower STEM Leaders with CalTeach!

Join us in transforming STEM education with CalTeach! Committed to addressing California's critical shortage of qualified math and science teachers, we recruit, support, and prepare a diverse group of undergraduate STEM majors to become socially just, equity-focused credentialed educators. 

Your generosity plays a critical role in preparing the next generation of science and math teachers. By supporting CalTeach, you are helping to offset the costs of:

  • Testing fees associated with teacher credentialing (averaging $500/student)
  • Teaching supplies for engaging lessons (averaging $100/student)
  • Professional attire for classroom confidence (averaging $100/student)
  • Transportation expenses to fieldwork sites for hands-on learning (averaging $300/student)

Your support extends beyond our students—it strengthens our entire community. With over 500 credentialed STEM teachers to date, CalTeach is making a tangible difference in classrooms throughout California. Together we can shape a brighter future for STEM learning!
