Enable them to become technologically literate citizens.

As a large number of CPS students are graduating and heading to college, CAFÉCS looks forward to expanding our work to support computing pathways in high school and beyond, which will allow us to continue to reduce education and equity barriers in computer science at the college level. 

With initial funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Chicago Alliance for Equity in Computer Science (CAFÉCS) was formalized  to support the district with teacher professional learning while at the same time contributing to educational theory. To this day, CAFÉCS has been awarded numerous grants that have allowed us to continue to emphasize quality computer science education and equity for all students in Chicago Public Schools (CPS).
