If you’re looking for a way to harness your computer science (CS) skills and make a difference for students, we invite you to become a Technology Education and Literacy in Schools (TEALS) volunteer.
Computer science is a vital driver in today’s global innovation economy, but most U.S. high schools are unable to offer rigorous CS courses. Without CS in high schools, our students are missing out on essential computational skills that will help them succeed in any career they wish to pursue, and professional skills that could lead to an economically secure future.
The TEALS program seeks to change that reality.
Our volunteers work directly with classroom teachers to help them build and grow their CS teaching capacity through yearlong support and training to inspire the next generation of computer scientists. If you’re interested in the opportunity to help shape students’ career opportunities – all while having fun – TEALS is the right fit for you.
