The CSforAll Consortium

Mission:  The CSforAll Consortium is a hub for the national Computer Science for All movement, which works to enable all students in grades K-12 to achieve computer science literacy as an integral part of their educational experience.

Leadership:  With deep cross functional expertise in CS education, the Consortium is led by a team at CSNYC with advisement from a steering committee that comprises the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM), the College Board, the Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA), and the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT).

Strategy:  The Consortium sets a collective agenda together with our membership of content providers, education associations, researchers, and supporters to help schools and districts provide all students with rigorous K-12 computer science education. We serve as a platform for connecting diverse stakeholders, providing support to new and developing initiatives, tracking and sharing progress, and communicating about the work to local and national audiences.

What Is CSforAll?

Computer Science for All is a bold new initiative to empower all US students from kindergarten through high school to learn computer science and be equipped with the computational thinking skills they need to be creators in the digital economy, not just consumers, and to be active citizens in our technology-driven world. Our economy is rapidly shifting, and educators, policy makers, families, and business leaders are increasingly recognizing that computer science (CS) is a “new basic” skill necessary for economic opportunity and social mobility.

CSforAll builds on efforts already being led by parents, teachers, school districts, states, and private sector leaders from across the country.

How Is the CSforAll Consortium Funded?

The initial funding for the CSforAll Consortium was provided through grant #1645894 by the National Science Foundation.
