Tech tools for Counselors
As one of the fastest growing sectors in Pennsylvania’s economy, there are over 18,000+ unfilled computer science jobs with an average salary of $80,000 and a projected growth of up to 26% annually. To help meet this career demand and fill the gap, Pennsylvania, under the leadership of Governor Tom Wolf and Secretary Pedro Rivera, is working to create and offer opportunities for every learning in computer science. Counselors are invited to the Pennsylvania Computer Science for All Summit (PA CS for ALL) as a key stakeholder in the effort help increase access to this job market for underrepresented populations and students from across the commonwealth.
Pennsylvania School Counselors Association (PSCA) and National Center for Women In Technology (NCWIT) have partnered to offer "Counselors 4 Computing" - a series of workshops at the PA CS for ALL summit on “Tech Tools for Counselors” and “Career Advising for 21st Century Careers”. Read More
