ECEP serves as the backbone organization, building a common agenda, facilitating network communications, & supporting mutually reinforcing activities across the ECEP Alliance & in individual states in order to increase capacity, access, participation & experiences for K-16 students underrepresented in computer science education.
We are STEM professionals providing high quality education to close achievement gaps for students in low income communities. We envision a day when all students, regardless of socioeconomic status, have a strong STEM foundation to help them navigate an increasingly complex world. Our "secret sauce" is that we recruit teachers and tutors from an untapped pool: career-changing and retiring STEM professionals. These individuals - with an average of 17 years in the private sector - bring real-world perspective and experience to the classroom. Our selection and professional development of these educators has resulted in an extraordinary 5-year retention rate of 88 percent.
