"Designing for Equity by Thinking in and about Mathematics" is an NSF-funded project in Pittsburgh that is leading teacher professional development through equal partnerships with teachers, mathematicians, and mathematics educators.  There are some great people behind this and they're looking for a "Mathematics Equity Fellow".  See the job posting here:
https://ats4.searchsoft.net/ats/trans_login?COMPANY_ID=00014077 (view available jobs and then CTRL-F for "equity")

More info on the project here:

This Friday/Saturday, I am co-organizing an AMS Special Session on Outreach for Mathematically Talented Youth at the Joint Math Meetings.  If you're at JMM, you're invited!  Please also spread the word.  In addition to many interesting talks for those already working in this area, I am hoping that it can be an introduction for people who want to get involved.

For university faculty: the Army Educational Outreach Program has an RFP for their REAP program, which funds research experiences for underserved high school students.  If you run a program, you're given some funding for resources plus a stipend to all participating students.  They've extended their deadline to January 6 if you are interested in participating or know someone who is.

The Summer Program in Mathematical Problem Solving is now seeking faculty and undergraduate counselors for its summer 2014 session!  Our instructors design their own courses in pure topics (e.g. number theory or combinatorics), applied topics (e.g. circuit design or astrophysics), or problem solving (both contest and general).  Counselors are TAs for these amazing classes, live with the students in the dorm and act as role models, and run all kinds of activities.  Please spread this far and wide and encourage people who might be suitable to apply!

I am co-organizing an AMS Special Session on Outreach for Mathematically Talented Youth at the upcoming Joint Mathematics Meetings in Baltimore.  I hope that you will come and spread the word to friends and colleagues!  This is something that more mathematicians should be plugged into, and higher attendance will give significant momentum to the work!

How can you engage students who don't want to put forth their own ideas, and ensure that the whole class is following the discussion?  Ben Blum-Smith posts some moments from his SPMPS class this summer in which he asks students to summarize each others work.  Fascinating stuff!

A new school is starting in the SF Bay Area for students who are very interested in mathematics.  The initiative has some great people behind it, and I look forward to seeing what a well-run school dedicated to high-level mathematics can do.  How can we bring this to students everywhere?
