Salem CS Education Advocates: Help a teacher teach critical computer science courses in OR/SW Wa -- Volunteer Info Session and Luncheon

Website

Description

The high schools listed below* have an exciting opportunity to offer computer science next year. They are investing in their students by partnering with Microsoft Philanthropies TEALS Program to build and grow their CS program. Less than 30% of Oregon High School offer any type of programming classes. Computer science is a vital driver in today’s global innovation economy. 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.

Action We’re Taking:

Microsoft Philanthropies TEALS Program recruits, trains, mentors, and places passionate technology professionals into high school classrooms as volunteer instructors and teaching assistants. These volunteers bring subject matter expertise and will join an existing high school teacher to teach computer science together. TEALS provides training for both parties, rigorous curricula, and opportunities for students to continue their education outside of the classroom. Are you a computer science professional who wants to help develop the next generation of Oregon techies? Come learn more about the Microsoft Philanthropies TEALS Program and how coding pros like you are changing lives as TEALS volunteers!
