VanessaMy name is Vanessa and I serve as the program director for T.E.E.M.S. AmeriCorps at Georgia State University, housed in the Alonzo A. Crim Center for Urban Educational Excellence.

It is our mission at the Alonzo A. Crim Center for Urban Educational Excellence to optimize the life opportunities of children and families in urban communities by ensuring the availability of a prosperous and equitable school environment. We believe that through our work we can create a world where all children have equal access to educational opportunities that prepare them to be academically excellent, culturally competent, and critically conscious.

The Alonzo A. Crim Center and AmeriCorps have collaborated to develop comprehensive day and after school programming for middle and high schools known as T.E.E.M.S. (Technology, Engineering, Environment, Math and Science). AmeriCorps members recruited for this program are mathematics and science majors/degrees and are trained in “Best Practices in Urban Education,” including effective tutoring and mentoring strategies.

If you’re interested in learning more about T.E.E.M.S., AmeriCorps service and how to get involved, please join us at one of our upcoming informational sessions listed below:
