Engage students through the use of technology in the classroom.  Teachers can use some resources listed to help professionally develop themselves.

More than 50% of todays jobs require some technology skills and experts say that percentage will increase to 77% in the next decade.

This project is in direct response to the call from Code.org to build computer science programs in every school in every district.  We started our program with Bret Harte Middle School in the Hayward Unified School District.  To date we have introduced Computer Science and Coding to over 1,000 students.  With our online program we can replicate this number every year.  Our goal is to successfully introduce Computer Science and Coding to at least 1,000 students Every Year.  As of Quarter 1(2018) we have successfully introduced CS/Coding to 217 students. 

With your support we can reach our goal.

What can CLOSING THE GAP FOR CHILDREN, INC. do?


We support programs that encourage as well as inspire students, parents and the community at large.  As a group of teachers and counselors our job is to make students think.  Our organization creates opportunities inside and outside of the classroom. 


We provide students with technology skills as a part of California's technology integration standards. Students will use a variety of technological devices to learn typing, computer science (coding) and Maker Skills (w/3D Printing). 


Our programs help students develop invaluable STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) skills.  Join us in supporting our students in the process of creating jobs that don't exist.
