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 November 2018 we have successfully introduced CS/Coding to 623 students.  One month to go!

With your support we can reach our goal.

Industry trends indicate that by 2020, there will be 1.4 million computing jobsavailable. On the surface this sounds great, but there's a problem. According to Code.org, colleges will only graduate 400,000 computer science student by 2020

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


We support computer science programs and technology integration in schools 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.
