The 2014 TCS New York City Marathon will be taking place on Sunday, November 2, 2014.
Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) is striving to benefit Teach for America (TFA) to help raise awareness of TFA's mission to ensure that kids growing up in poverty get an excellent education. TCS is proud to partner with TFA to help increase STEM education, specifically the importance of Computer Science and Technology related fields, in today’s society.
This year, TCS and TFA piloted a Computer Science program, teaching New York City students Scratch. During the pilot, volunteers led guest lessons in Computer Science classrooms in small groups, utilizing their unique skills and professional expertise, and serving as inspiring role models to students considering potential careers in Computer Science.
Runners in the TCS New York City Marathon are working hard to raise money for this cause. TCS has set a fundraising goal of $25,000 and has committed to matching this year’s total contribution.
