The Call for 2023 Commitments is Now Open
In 2022, we announced 181 new CSforALL Commitments from 135 organizations.
What is a CSforALL Commitment?
CSforALL Commitments are new, specific, and measurable actions taken by community stakeholders in support of achieving the ultimate goal of computer science for all U.S. students. Commitments can be large or small and don’t always require large investments of funding. They must represent new work or be additive to existing work, such as expanding a program to a new audience or significantly growing the reach of a program. Commitments are announced at the annual CSforALL Summit and commitment progress is celebrated year-round through social media, guest blogs, events, and more.
The commitment categories reflect the CSforALL priority areas:
- Raise Awareness
- Build Capacity
- Increase Equitable Access & Outcomes
- Racial Equity
Submitting a commitment is quick and easy, check out our commitment wizard, designed to help you “initiate” the process of writing a concise and impactful commitment. The wizard will automatically generate a brief commitment statement based on your responses, which can be used when submitting the actual commitment.
Making a commitment gives organizations an opportunity to announce a new CS effort on a national stage, which can be leveraged to bring new partners to the table, increase impact, and grow the footprint of engaged stakeholders.
Past CSforALL Commitment Makers discuss their Commitments and the progress made towards fulfilling those Commitments at the 2022 CSforALL Summit
