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!

Google Groups


Code Club in your local community

We encourage you to hold your own Code Club meet ups where ever you are in the country. We want to create an active Code Club community so get your local volunteers together and see how you can help each other out. Send us the details of your meet up and we'll put it up here and tweet it.
