Volunteer with Code Club

09 Apr 2019


Code Club works with a global community of volunteers, educators, and partners to run free coding clubs where 9 to 13-year-olds build and share their ideas.
The projects are free and open to all. They are easy-to-follow, step-by-step guides that young people use to make their own games, animations, and websites with coding languages such as Scratch, HTML/CSS, and Python.

The projects introduce coding concepts one by one and let young people progressively build their knowledge. Adults running the clubs don’t need to be experienced coders, and many volunteers in our community enjoy learning alongside their club members.

Code Club provides help and support to clubs and volunteers through online training, community events, and a help desk. They also offer lots of additional useful resources, such as downloadable certificates and posters, and we regularly run competitions and prize draws to keep the clubs inspired and connected.

Volunteering at your local Code Club is a great way to expand your digital skills

Volunteers support and encourage their Code Club members while these young people use the step-by-step Code Club project guides to create games, animations, and web pages. Whether you’re an experienced coder or an absolute beginner, get involved today! For more information go to to the Code Club website.
