Drive Action in the Computer Science Education Space

For the sixth year, CSforALL has opened its call for commitments to organizations around the globe to join and grow the computer science for all movement

The Call for 2022 CSforALL Commitments is Now Open

For the sixth year in a row, CSforALL is excited to announce the opening of the 2022 CSforALL Call for Commitments for organizations around the globe. CSforALL welcomes all stakeholders (nonprofits, corporations, school districts, universities, and more) to make a CSforALL Commitment which are new, specific, and measurable actions taken by community organizations in support of achieving the ultimate goal of computer science education for all students. Since 2017, the CSforALL Community has publicly announced 941 Commitments by 746 organizations that vary from workshops, computer science courses, coding lessons to electronic devices. These Commitments continue to give stakeholders the opportunity for new partnerships, innovative approaches, and national recognition. Commitments are announced annually at the national CSforALL Summit. This year, the 2022 CSforALL Summit will be held October 19 - 21 in Memphis, Tennessee.

#CSforALL commitments are new, specific, and measurable actions aimed at advancing the goal of rigorous and inclusive computer science education for all US youth, and are designed to grow support and momentum for a sustainable K-12 computer science education system in and out of school.

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.

We welcome commitments from the community in the following four categories:

This year’s theme is “Game Changer in CS”.

  1. Raise Awareness
  2. Build Capacity
  3. Increase Equitable Access & Outcomes
  4. Racial Equity

Early Bird Deadline for 2022 Commitments is August 1, 2022.

For the sixth year, CSforALL is delighted to announce that the 2022 CSforALL Summit will be hosted in historic and musical Memphis, Tennessee at The Guest House at Graceland. We’re excited to bring the CSforALL Summit and CS education community to the southern home of the blues, soul, rock-n-roll music, and barbecue.

The national K-12 computer science education community will come together for a three-day convening October 19–21, 2022 to share, learn and celebrate the #CSforALL movement. With our Memphis partner CodeCrew, we’re looking forward to high-level conversations with national thought leaders highlighting strategies for equity, removing barriers to access, and building meaningful engagement for all students.

At CSforALL, the health and safety of our community is our top priority. We understand that there are heightened concerns surrounding conference attendance and COVID-19. We will continue to carefully monitor the situation with COVID-19, and the impact it is having on health and safety, travel, and public events.

We will work with the conference hotels and local destinations to ensure all attendees are safe and healthy when attending the conference. The CSforALL Summit page will be updated frequently to ensure attendees have the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding the 2022 in-person CSforALL conference and our health and safety plans.
