Computer Science Volunteers Needed


Peters Township School District is seeking volunteers to help inspire students and generate interest in the computer science field through teaching and sharing your professional experiences.

Science and technology are critical drivers of today’s global innovation economy. More and more companies–across all industry sectors–are seeking people with computer science (CS) and computer engineering skills. In the U.S., there will be 1.4 million CS-related jobs by 2020, yet U.S. college graduates are expected to fill less than a third of those jobs. For American youth, this means an unfortunate mismatch between education and opportunity that we must solve by bringing together professionals from across the CS industry. By increasing access to CS for all youth as early as possible, we will help them prepare for the jobs of today and tomorrow and give them the opportunity to become creators of technology and the world’s future innovators.

Peters Township has partnered with TEALS (Technology Education and Literacy in Schools) to build and grow its High School computer science programs through partnerships between classroom teachers and tech industry volunteers.

Volunteers will work with the classroom teacher and must be able to be in the classroom physically or virtually during first period classes (7:30 – 8:11 a.m.) for the 2017-2018 school year.

Learn more about this exciting opportunity and sign up for an information session at https://www.tealsk12.org/volunteers/.

Interested individuals may also contact Assistant Principal April Ragland at 724-941-6251 x5215.
