BEAM is looking for a Manager, Program Training and Design to help our Programs and Learning/Evaluation teams. If you are passionate about educational equity and knowledgeable about training, keep reading!

BEAM’s Design Team, a department of BEAM’s Programs Division, is responsible for the design, piloting, and codification of BEAM’s core programming, including BEAM Discovery and the five modules that together comprise the BEAM Pathway Program (8th grade-college graduation). The team is responsible for building and then delivering materials and systems ready for implementation to local programs teams (currently Los Angeles and New York City), training colleagues on these materials and systems, and conducting an iterative improvement cycle to those materials and systems as needed. To enable building and training to proceed effectively, the Design Team places strong focus on effective communication, both written and verbal. The Design Team works closely with the Learning & Evaluation Team to ensure that monitoring and data collection is happening, that formative and summative results are considered, and that improvements are data driven.  


COVID-19 Note: Proof of vaccination (and a booster shot when eligible) will be required before working in-person at the office or BEAM events/programming.



As the Manager, Program Training and Design, your core work will be understanding BEAM’s programs deeply enough to produce high quality implementation and training materials. The implementation materials will allow programs to run as designed. The training materials will support BEAM staff in running these programs (including seasonal, part-time staff as well as full-time program delivery staff). In some cases, you will be able to draw upon existing BEAM implementation and training materials and you will be tasked with ensuring that they match Design Team standard protocols. In other cases, you will be part of the team creating new programming to address gaps and areas of growth in BEAM’s model, tasked with refining the vision of the Chief Program Officer and the Director of the Design Team and turning intended plans into comprehensive implementation and training materials. You will also remain highly involved in the iterative design process of new programs, collecting and synthesizing feedback and then using it to conduct improvement cycles until such time as the programs are codified.

About BEAM

The mission of BEAM is to help students from low-income and historically marginalized communities with talent in math enter a realistic pathway towards becoming scientists, mathematicians, engineers, and programmers. Led by staff with these same technical backgrounds, BEAM believes that pathways to STEM careers are created through access to advanced work that typically lies outside most school curricula. Hence, we work to transition our students to the same enrichment programs as more affluent students typically access.

BEAM's model provides continuous support from middle school through college graduation, including intense academic summer programs for middle school students (after 6th and 7th grade), weekend classes and mentoring, and STEM-focused support to enrolled college students. Our program includes not just access to learning advanced math but also support finding and applying to other opportunities, including college admissions and financial aid. In addition to our academic content, bringing students into an intellectual community is a key part of our mission and all of our work is designed around that goal.

BEAM has grown from a small summer program serving 17 students in the summer of 2011 to a year-round, national program, serving 420+ students in summer 2021 at six program sites and 600+ students in year-round programming in New York City and Los Angeles this school year. In addition, our BEAM National pilot program is working with schools across the country to make our programs available to students everywhere and begin providing services in elementary school. BEAM's work has been featured in the New York Times and the Atlantic. The Times article, in particular, is a good description of the experience for students.
