Support TEALS

Help us grow the program and support more students and communities.

Volunteers are crucial to the success of TEALS (Technology Education and Literacy in Schools). Currently, less than 1 percent of US teachers are teaching computer science. That is not enough to close the gap, qualified volunteers are necessary if we truly want to make a difference.

TEALS training TEALS brings computer science expertise to students and teachers, without any training or development costs to schools.
TEALS program The TEALS program has brought more than 50 computer science courses into schools that did not previously have them.
TEALS is a highly organized team-teaching model that includes intensive training to prepare volunteers to be successful in the classroom. After they are trained, volunteers are encouraged to teach up to one online or in-person class per day, with many volunteers opting to teach during the morning.

If you’re a software engineer, please consider volunteering. The commitment is significant, but so is the reward: helping more young people get exposure to computer science education and helping broaden their opportunities for the future.

According to the College Board studying AP computer science can open the pathway to 130 career areas and 48 college majors.
