Hyland, TECH CORPS announce five-year partnership extension as part of 2021 CSEdWeek

Organizations develop programming to meet shared mission of providing access to computer science and inspiring careers in technology

Hyland, a leading content services provider, and TECH CORPS, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ensuring students have access to computer science programs, announced on Monday a five-year partnership extension as the kickoff to CSEdWeek 2021.

As part of the partnership, Hyland and TECH CORPS will continue to partner to bring high quality computer science education to students from elementary school to high school. The partnership has continued to evolve, as the organizations now are developing new curricula and reaching students in new communities across Ohio.

“TECH CORPS has been a truly collaborative partner of Hyland’s, and we’ve developed a partnership that fits both of our organizational goals,” said John Phelan, Hyland’s executive vice president and chief product officer and a member of TECH CORPS’ board of directors. “We’re committed to giving back and collaborating on our joint mission with funding and significant employee support, and we know that TECH CORPS has the knowledge, insight and expertise to execute these programs.”

CSEdWeek, which runs Dec. 6-12, is an annual event designed to inspire students to learn computer science, advocate for equity in computer science education, and celebrate the contributions of students, teachers and partners within the field. Hyland has partnered with TECH CORPS on the event for the last three years, and this year, 5,000 students in third and fourth grades in 10 states will participate in programming centered around the connection between computer science and mathematics. Hyland has incentivized teacher and classroom participation with funding for computer science materials for winning teachers’ classrooms.

“We can’t do this work alone, which is why it’s important to work with partners who are not only aligned with our mission, but actively collaborate with us to advance that mission,” said Lisa Chambers, TECH CORPS’ national executive director. “We’re so pleased to extend our partnership with Hyland, which has patiently and intentionally developed a truly strategic long-term partnership with us.”

Hyland’s partnership with TECH CORPS is just one part of the company’s broad efforts to build and inspire careers in technology programs. The company aims to spark and inspire interest in technology, provide experiential opportunities meant to develop and grow students’ curiosity around tech, and engage and retain that interest and advance students’ skills.

Those efforts include:

  • Hyland’s STEM program at Cleveland State University’s Fenn Academy, through which Hyland encourages students to pursue higher education in engineering and computer science by bridging the education gap in math between high school and college
  • 10-year partnership with St. Martin de Porres High School in Cleveland on the school’s work-study program; Hyland recently expanded its presence at St. Martin, providing weekly professional training to students in OnBase, Hyland’s content services platform
  • Longtime partnership with Youth Opportunities Unlimited, through which Hyland has supported internship programs – six students interned at Hyland in 2021. Hyland has hosted virtual career panels featuring representatives from many technical roles (cybersecurity, software development and more), and Hyland employees also have served as instructors and mentors for sophomores and juniors in Cuyahoga County.
  • Weekly coding pilot program at Cleveland’s Urban Community School
  • And more
