K-12 Alliance

K-12 Logo

The NCWIT K–12 Alliance is dedicated to creating access to an authentic, inclusive computing education for every girl, everywhere. The alliance leverages the influence and diversity of its members to create outreach programs and resources that recruit, retain, and advance more girls into computing nationwide. By working together to make sure every voice is heard, alliance members make a larger and more immediate difference than if they acted alone.

Who we are

The NCWIT K–12 Alliance’s national outreach programs and projects, including Aspirations in Computing, Counselors for Computing (C4C), and TECHNOLOchicas, work to increase recruitment, retention, and advancement of girls in computing. Bringing together more than 400 national and local organizations, the alliance serves multiple stakeholders, including girls (and an increasing number of boys) and adult influencers, such as counselors, formal and informal educators, and families.
