The Computer Science Collaboration Project uses the most successful elements of the National Girls Collaborative Project (NGCP) to connect various alliances and K-12 outreach organizations with a specific focus on outreach to and collaboration with youth with disabilities and underrepresented minority youth.

In October 2011, the CSCP offered funding for mini-grant proposals engaging youth with disabilities in computer science opportunities through collaborative projects. Funded projects brought together over 36 cross-sector organizations across 6 states to address accessibility issues and empower youth to create new technologies.
