The Summer Bootcamp will also introduce you to community college faculty roles/responsibilities and classroom expectations. The days will be packed with information including instruction and lab work.

This program also includes mentoring and the opportunity to serve as an assistant instructor at a community or technical college this fall*.

Eligible participants will receive a stipend of up to $4,500 based on successful achievement of certain milestones.

*Every effort will be made to pair bootcamp participants with a community/technical college for a virtual or in-person teaching assignment, but cannot be guaranteed depending on availability at participating colleges.
