Google announced a donation of $1.5 million to bring computer science to students at Chicago Public Schools. $1 million will go to Chance the Rapper’s SocialWorks nonprofit, while $500,000 will go to Chicago Public Schools’ CS4All Initiative.

“Our grant with Google.org helps SocialWorks provide programming that sheds light on another pathway to success for young Chicagoans,” Justin Cunningham, executive director of SocialWorks, said in a statement on Wednesday. “While every student doesn’t need to become a computer scientist, understanding the basics empowers them to understand the world they live in. The opportunity to help kids code to share their music, artwork, and distinct point of view is at the core of our mission and an experience we look forward to providing in classrooms across the city.”
In March, Chance announced that he would be donating $1 million to CPS. SocialWorks then raised $2.2 million for the school system with donations coming from the Chicago Bulls, Lyft, and others.

About Catiana Saillant

As a child, I’ve always loved music. From different genres such as Hip-Hop, R&B and Pop. Music allows you to be creative and express yourself the way that you please to. I’ve sought music to be a place where you can be YOU. You can dance, cry, laugh and do all kinds of crazy things to music. That is what makes me so passionate about what I do! My ultimate goal is to build a mainstream media platform that represents and supports culture such as paintings, music, film and provide empowering media coverage to my viewers.
