Broadcom Foundation Goals

Broadcom Foundation strives to empower young people to be creative STEM problem solvers who can think critically, communicate, collaborate, be persistent, and become experts in the digital world.
The foundation characterizes digital literacy as the confident use of the full range of digital technologies, including some basic knowledge of coding.
Equitable access to broadband internet promises to open doors to women and underrepresented and under-resourced youth in urban, rural, and tribal communities to become digitally literate.
Broadcom Foundation promotes free online tools for after-school Code Clubs, where optimal project-based learning time enables children in grades 5-8 to develop basic coding skills.
Through foundation-sponsored science fairs, Broadcom Foundation encourages civic awareness in STEM through Broadcom Coding with Commitment®, which inspires middle schoolers to use coding skills to solve community problems they care about.
This aligns with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations and creates volunteer opportunities for Broadcom Inc. employees around the world.

Inspiring Digital Literacy Through Basic Coding

Broadcom Coding with Commitment®

Broadcom Foundation advocates basic coding as a skill to solve community problems students care about that align with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the UN in order for them to be digitally literate citizens who “act locally and think globally.”
We strive to ensure all youth are digitally literate through STEM programs that include basic coding and computational thinking as the 21st Century+ skills needed to succeed in STEM careers.
