The TEALS program is expanding its reach
Over the next five years, TEALS will increase access to and participation in CS by Black and African American students. We need volunteers.
Why volunteer with TEALS?
Use your skills to inspire the coders and creators of tomorrow. Volunteer with TEALS to make a difference in communities and schools that stand to gain the most from your knowledge and expertise.
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 teachers to teach CS
Magnum Dampier, an Information Systems Director in Kansas, volunteers with a TEALS classroom in Texas through videoconferencing. He is equipping the teacher and school with the knowledge and confidence to eventually run CS courses on their own.
The power of remote volunteering
“I am a remote volunteer because I believe in sharing computer science knowledge with students who otherwise wouldn’t have access.” – Sierra Acy, Software Engineer and TEALS volunteer
