Indigenous Educators Corps

Are you an aspiring educator who wants to be involved in a community-based movement to transform Indigenous education? If so, serving in the Indigenous Educator Corps (IEC) might be for you.

An AmeriCorps program offered in partnership with NISN schools and the Corporation for National and Community Service, the IEC aims to deliver enriched educational experiences that build on community-defined needs and strengths for Native American students in New Mexico.

As an Indigenous Educator Corps Member, you will serve students through mentoring, academic support and community based projects. Benefits of service include a living stipend, a $6,095 Segal Education Award to pay for educational expenses, and access to mentoring and professional development that provides a pathway toward becoming a licensed educator.

We are currently recruiting corps members for the 2019 - 2020 school year. For further information about service sites and positions, please contact Ventura Lovato at ventura@nacasinspiredschoolsnetwork.org or 505.933.3597.
