Volunteer for National Computer Science Education Week
December 6 – 11, 2021
Oakland celebrates national Computer Science Education Week with the theme “beyond” because there are so many other skills used in the CS field beyond coding: art and design, music, critical thinking, problem-solving, communication, more.
You can encourage Oakland students to see themselves in this bigger picture of the tech sector’s diverse career opportunities by volunteering! We are offering both in-person and virtual volunteer opportunities.
Design Your Own, Interactive Activity
Do you work in the sector? We would love to have you (and your team) join us and share first-hand experiences with students. Both technical and non-technical roles are valuable for students.
- Prepare an interactive, online demonstration
- Visit a virtual classroom as a guest speaker / career panelist
- Share a virtual tour of your office (pre-recorded)

We are partnering with OUSD’s CS Department to identify schools to host events, and we’d love to hear from you if you aren’t yet plugged in! (Sam Berg + Brenda Tuohy)
