How to Help

Make a generous donation

We're working to give every student the opportunity to learn computer science — online and in schools where we’ll establish permanent courses and train teachers. One child learns for every dollar you donate.

Ask your school to teach computer science

Encourage local elementary schools to teach our elementary curriculum or recruit teachers to attend a one-day workshop- at no cost. Or partner with to bring permanent courses into middle and high schools.


Advocate for computer science locally

Petition your state to allow computer science to count towards math or science high school graduation credits. And promote computer science in your area with these stats, quotes and videos.

Translate our tutorials

Volunteers have translated our tutorials in over 40 languages. Help us continue to expand our tutorials for students around the world!

Buy a CODE hat or t-shirt

Support our work and wear the movement with pride. Our hats have been worn by President Obama and celebrities too. cap t-shirt stickers

Host an Hour of Code - at work, in your community, or local school

Millions of people of all ages have learned an Hour of Code, a one-hour introductory course designed to demystify computer science and show that anybody can learn the basics. Anybody, anywhere, anytime can learn an Hour of Code.

Are you a software engineer? Help spread computer science

Offer help to local teachers

If you're a software engineer, there are many opportunities to get involved locally. Volunteer to teach our Code Studio courses to local students with this guide. And sign up to hear about volunteer opportunities near you.

Or become a volunteer teacher yourself with one of these organizations:

  • TEALS brings together hundreds of software engineers and teachers to help build sustainable CS classes across the country. Join the more than 1,500 CS professionals who have made an impact in local high schools by volunteering 2 days a week to teacher Intro and AP CS classes.
  • CoderDojo - Start a Dojo in your neighborhood, mentor children to learn to code.
  • Citizen Schools - Volunteer to teach computer programming in extended-day programs at schools.

Teach an online course to your child, or in any classroom's online platform Code Studio enables students to learn the basic concepts of computer science as early as kindergarten. Try Play Lab, a tool developed for elementary students to create games and stories. Or try App Lab, a JavaScript programming environment for high school students to create apps.
