Code Club is a nationwide network of free volunteer-led coding lessons for children aged 9-11 years old.
What will I be doing?
As a Code Club volunteer, you'll:
- Supervise children when they're at the club.
- Present workshops to groups of children using Scratch and Python.
- Work with children in small groups on specific projects.
- Promote the Code Club.
What skills or experience do I need?
If you'd like to a Code Club volunteer, you'll need to:
- Be confident with computers.
- Have the patience, enthusiasm and communication skills to encourage a joy of digital making.
- Be friendly and welcoming.
- Have a non-judgemental attitude.
You don't have to be a coding genius to volunteer as most clubs start with simple programs, such as Scratch. But you do need to be willing to learn.
How much time do I need to give?
Code Clubs are 1 or 2 hours long and take place at the same time every week, fortnight or month.
You'll need to commit to a group of sessions and stay for the whole duration.
Which library will I volunteer at?
We run Code Clubs at a number of libraries in the borough.
Please contact us to find out where the current groups are held.
