How to Help

Ask your school to teach computer science

Encourage your local school to start teaching computer science. To make it easier, Code.org offers courses for every grade level from kindergarten through high school at no cost. And, teachers can enroll in our hands-on professional learning workshops offered locally across the United States.

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.

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.

Make a generous donation or have Amazon do it for you

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. If you shop on Amazon, use AmazonSmile and choose Code.org as your charity to donate a percent of all your purchases to Code.org.

  

Translate our tutorials

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

Teach an online course to your child, or in any classroom

Code.org's online platform Code Studio enables students to learn the basic concepts of computer science as early as kindergarten. You don't need any prior experience to get started - you can learn along with your children. If you do know some programming, try App Lab, a JavaScript programming environment for high school students to create apps.

Even an hour makes a difference
