Teach Access is a non-profit that collaborates with academic institutions, industry, and disability advocacy organizations to make the fundamentals of digital accessibility, including design principles and best practices, a part of undergraduate education. Financial support is critical to furthering the mission. Check out our full list of corporate sponsors.
Your support is critical to help us reach 1 million students by 2030!
Companies worldwide are dedicating more and more resources to reaching every potential user, enabling usable, delightful, and accessible experiences. Technologies are changing rapidly, and companies need employees with cutting-edge skill sets, primarily focused on accessible design and development for people with disabilities. In addition, all of an organization’s stakeholders – customers, employees, shareholders, and communities – include people with disabilities who can and should be served by accessible products and services.
Teach Access is dedicated to filling that employee skills gap and has successfully launched initiatives that have already shown tangible progress. We intend to scale our efforts and have set forth a set of ambitious goals that will help higher educational institutions send more workforce-ready graduates into rewarding jobs. To support our shared mission of creating a world of “born accessible” technologies, we need your financial help.
With your support, we can continue to close the skills gap! We will:
- Provide more curriculum development grants to faculty who are ready to incorporate accessibility into their existing courses. Since 2018 Teach Access has given more than $350,000 in grants.
- Continue to expand our free collection of open education resources (OER) in the Teach Access Curriculum Repository.
- Grow the Teach Access Study Away program and Student Career Development Series, engaging students each academic year with our partners by introducing them to accessible design and development.
- Create a continuous pipeline of skilled interns and employees for your organization, to help your team build products and services that are born accessible.
- Expand our open-source Accessibility Skills Hiring Toolkit for HR departments and hiring managers to help you improve your internal processes.
Corporations of all sizes and across all industries are looking to Teach Access for support. You can view a list of our supporters here and help us continue to grow.
Help us reach 1 million students by 2030 and ensure future designers, developers, and programmers have the needed skills to allow everyone equal access to technologies.
