Microsoft Philanthropies expands program that sends tech company volunteers into high schools to teach computer science

May 15, 2017   |   Steve Clarke

Microsoft Philanthropies on Monday announced a major expansion of the Technology Education and Literacy in Schools (TEALS ) program, which pairs tech professionals with teachers to co-teach computer science in high schools around the country.

The expansion will add almost 100 schools to the program for the coming school year and will recruit 1,100 volunteers from companies ranging from small startups to large corporations such as Amazon, Google and Microsoft.

TEALS volunteers teach introduction to computer science and AP computer science classes, and help prepare teachers to gradually take over teaching the courses. The program depends on volunteers from local companies, and anyone with a computer programming background, and a desire to contribute to their community, is encouraged to apply.
