TEALS Volunteer Info Session & Happy Hour
April 10, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
TEALS helps high schools build and grow sustainable computer science programs through partnerships between classroom teachers and tech industry volunteers. They work as a team to deliver CS education to students who would otherwise not have the opportunity to learn computer science (CS) in their school.
Over two years, the classroom teacher gradually takes over the responsibilities of teaching the course without volunteer support. The team-teaching and volunteer system of TEALS creates a strong ripple effect: it empowers teachers who can multiply the impact by providing computer science education to hundreds more students over the years.
TEALS volunteers help fill the CS education gap for teachers and students alike. Volunteers provide CS expertise and classroom teachers provide educational expertise. Together, this creates the perfect partnership to teach CS in high schools. Over time, TEALS volunteers help classroom teachers teach CS independently and confidently. Our volunteers create a ripple effect that gives current and future students the opportunity to be innovators and creators of technology. The TEALS program is an ideal setting for CS professionals to use their highly-technical skillset to foster the next generation of inventors and coders.
If you’re interested in learning how you can volunteer with TEALS to support Oakland or other Bay Area schools, this event is for you. We would love to have diverse technical professionals volunteering and inspiring local youth to explore technical skills.
