At Dreamforce 2015, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella announced a new, global commitment of $75 million over the next three years to increase access to computer science education for all youth.

Through the company’s global YouthSpark initiative, scores of nonprofit organizations around the world will receive cash donations and resources to provide CS education to diverse populations of young people in their communities. As part of this, Microsoft will also expand its Technology Education and Literacy in Schools (TEALS) program. TEALS aims to grow five-fold in the next three years, with the goal of working with 2,000 tech industry volunteers to reach 30,000 students in nearly 700 schools across 33 states.
