---CS4Philly Overview -----

CS4Philly was launched last December as a call to action for the public and private investment needed to make this vision a reality. Its mission aligns with the national Computer Science for All movement to make CS an integral part of the educational experience of all K-12 students and teachers and to support student pathways to college and career success.

The CS4Philly “Bill of Rights” proclaims that all of Philadelphia’s children and youth have the right to access the knowledge, skills and abilities needed to participate fully in the digital economy; to be creators in the digital economy, not just consumers, and to be active citizens in our technology-driven world.
