We are looking for rising sophomore, junior, or senior STEM majors to join the Applied Mathematics Mentorship Program (AMMP). The mentorship program will rehumanize mathematics for the majority Black and Latina/o South LA 7th – 9th grade students by engaging them as doers and creators of socially useful and culturally relevant mathematics.
During the first semester of ’23 – ‘24, undergraduates in AMMP will work with South Los Angeles teachers and students as they investigate a mathematics question related to the environmental science of their community, the spread of Covid-19 in their community, or current South LA aerospace efforts. AMMP investigations are the result of collaborations between The Curtis Center, SpaceX, LA start-up Conservify, and UCLA Applied Mathematicians. A goal of AMMP is to embed STEM mentors of similar background in these students’ mathematics experiences, to serve as “windows and mirrors” and highlight mathematics as a socially useful and relevant endeavor, one in which their whole person can engage.
AMMP undergraduates will receive a stipend of $2228 (includes work and travel!!!!)
If you’re selected to participate, you will need:
- to be able to attend the 36 hour (six days of 6 hours each) Team Lead trainings July 31 – August 2 and three follow up Team Lead trainings on Saturdays scheduled for September 30th, October 21st, and November 18th from 8:30AM – 3:00PM.
- time in your schedule to travel to an AMMP school and participate in a one hour class once a week for 16 weeks during the LAUSD Fall Semester (August 21st – December 15th). Our partner schools are Paul Revere Middle School, Western Avenue T.E.C.H. Magnet School, and Barack Obama Global Preparation Academy (exact class periods and days have yet to be determined.) Once we update the information above, refer to this as you plan your Fall 2023 schedule.
If you are interested in becoming an undergraduate mentor, please email Julian Rojas at email@example.com.
