For the eighth year, CSforALL opens its Call for Commitments for stakeholders to drive action and grow the computer science for all movement

Make a CSforALL Commitment today! Learn more or visit us at www.summit.csforall.org

CSforALL is inviting all stakeholders to create an impactful computer science education commitment for all students! This year’s stakeholders (nonprofits, corporations, school districts, universities, and more) should make commitments that are specific and measurable actions that help achieve the goal of making computer science a fundamental part of every student’s education.

Last year at the CSforALL Summit in Oakland, CSforALL was proud to announce that since 2017, we have received 1,556 Commitments from 552 organizations and 288 schools across the globe. CSforALL Commitments vary from student networking opportunities to providing professional development, organizing robotic summer camps, improving CS AP scores and student participation, and more!

Stakeholders who are interested in submitting a 2024 CSforALL Commitment have the creative opportunity to partner with other organizations; launch new initiatives; set new goals for ongoing projects; and be nationally recognized for their work toward making computer science an integral part of the education experience for all students.

The 2024 CSforALL Commitment Categories:

Stakeholders have the ability to submit one or more Commitments in the categories of Raise Awareness, Build Capacity, Increase Equitable Access and Outcomes, and/or Racial Equity.

We welcome Commitments in the following four categories:

Raise Awareness: Your organization commits to generate attention around computer science to educators, policymakers, funders, parents and/or students through new partnerships, digital campaigns, organized fundraising, educational events, or additional strategies. By sparking interest, knowledge, and action, your commitment will use awareness to inspire concrete actions and steps in order to create increased CS pathways for students.

Build Capacity: Your organization commits to address the limited bandwidth of schools, school districts, and/or local communities by increasing the capacity of computer science education in K-12. The commitment could focus on increasing teacher training and development; providing financial resources to support implementation; or developing collaborative partnership or strategies that build the infrastructure of local ecosystems to support CS education.

Increase Equitable Access: Your commitment is to move the needle beyond building capacity and explicitly create or expand opportunities to ensure all students have equitable access to computer sciences courses, programs, and/or activities. The priority for learner participation is focused on students whose race, gender, ethnicity, class, or ability correlates with disadvantages in accessing CS education. The commitment could focus on direct service to youth through CS classes in during-school and after-school opportunities, providing distance and remote learning, or supporting new community-based activities such as robotics or programming teams.

Racial Equity: Your commitment specifically and explicitly addresses broadening participation to a group historically excluded from, and underrepresented in, computer science. Your commitment explicitly names the racial or ethnic group with whom you will be working. The commitment describes the experience working with students from this group and the ways in which your activities are culturally relevant and sustaining to the population you serve.

Where Do I Make a Commitment?


The Early Bird Deadline for submitting your 2024 Commitments is Thursday, August 15, 2024.

The Final Deadline to make a 2024 Commitment is Thursday, September 12, 2024.
