Wanna teach kids to code?, there are many ways in which you can volunteer with your local CoderDojo to teach kids, whether you are technical or not, to find out more: see below.
CoderDojo is a fun and social space where young people, between 7 and 17, can go to explore technology together and get advice and support from skilled mentors.

Once you have registered with CoderDojo, you can access all our learning material online.
Thank You To Our Supporting Partners
Our participating Ninjas, aged 8 – 17 learn computing and coding skills and we break them into primary school and secondary school age groups.
The primary school age group (8 – 12 years) must have parents/guardians present with them during classes, and the older group (13 – 17 years) will have 2 – 3 parents available as supervision during their classes.
Each student starts in a beginner group for their age and are given the basics of coding and computing in their first term. After their first term they have the option to advance to the intermediate group to learn more advanced content or work on projects of their own creation with aid from the volunteers.
Students in the intermediate groups are free to work on their own projects.
Students can ask also technical volunteers questions to help them complete them and potentially improve how they work.
Students receive their first belt for attending five classes and from then on they receive belts of numerous other colour levels up to black depending on the skill/project level that they can demonstrate in any of the available coding languages.
Here is a list of programs we use.
- Android Developer
- Scratch 2.0
- Google App Inventor
- Lego robotics
