Bridging the opportunity gap
Brandy Foster didn’t let an opportunity gap limit her dreams. One internship and hours of self-education later, Foster is a developer at Detroit Labs and volunteers in a TEALS class where she encourages and inspires students to consider a career in technology.
Training educators to teach CS
Magnum Dampier, a CTO in Kansas City, volunteered with a TEALS classroom in Texas through videoconferencing. He equipped the teacher and school with the knowledge and confidence to eventually run CS courses on their own.
Volunteering can impact your community
Rose, a TEALS volunteer in New Orleans, doesn’t see a variety of options for jobs that lead to financial and career growth. “By volunteering with TEALS, I can help create a pipeline, so people know careers in tech are an option for them.” says Rose.
