Computer Science Education Advocates: 27 GA High Schools Need Your Help

Are you a computer science professional who wants to help develop the next generation of Georgia techies? Microsoft Philanthropies TEALS Program is looking for volunteers to work with local high school teachers to co-teach computer science classes.

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.

TEALS 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 innovators and computer scientists.

If you’re interested in learning more about the opportunity to help shape students’ career opportunities – all while having fun – come learn how TEALS might be the right fit for you!
