The Scratch Education Collaborative (SEC) is an initiative that supports and engages participating organizations from around the world in a two-year, collaborative cohort experience to strengthen their organization’s commitment to, and implementation of, equitable creative coding using Scratch and ScratchJr.

SEC participants engage in a series of collaborative learning experiences that are co-developed and co-facilitated by Scratch and SEC partner organizations as they work to create a self-sustaining community of practice and establish models for equity-centered creative coding resources.

SEC Vision

Increase access and eliminate gaps that have limited creative coding opportunities for educators and students in traditionally underrepresented communities

Realign the resources of the Scratch Foundation toward a greater focus on serving marginalized communities and local organizations that support them with creative coding opportunities

Create a self-sustaining network and models for equity-centered creative coding resources and learning experiences
