The Educator Fellowship Program


The Fellowship is a 10-month paid experience designed to build the capacity of educators to teach intermediate- and advance-level computer science curriculum. Cohorts of up to 20 educators, both school- and community-based, will engage in a professional learning community, instructional strategy engagements, and connection to paid opportunities. In our program, we will teach Educators the Swift programming language and the app design process--to which educators will leverage to design and pitch their own app prototype. 

Our Application for the 2021 Fellowship will Open January 2021!
