Communities & Events
We’d like to encourage Code Club volunteers to connect to each other and create Code Club communities.
Two heads are better than one. If you are volunteer who would like some help getting started, running your Code Club or can offer help to someone else, then reach out to the community.
Lots of communities have already organised their own meet ups and ‘Getting to know Scratch’ sessions. Excellent work!
Join in online
We've set up Google groups (forum style) so you can start talking to each other. Here you can organise your own local meet ups and say hello to each other. We have also set up a general forum to ask questions about running a club. Play nice!
Code Club in your local community
We encourage you to hold your own Code Club meet ups where ever you are in the country. If you want arrange a local Code Club meetup to share tips, ideas and talk about running a club, send us the details here.
We do like a day out here at Code Club. You’ll find us at loads of events across the country.
We’ve listed them out below so you can come too. Yay!
