Code Club provides free projects and resources for you to run a Code Club for children aged 9-13 in your venue.
You can connect with volunteers in your local area through our site, or you can work with a volunteer that you already know from your community.
Most clubs run for an hour a week with around 15 young people, but this is flexible. We provide resources and projects to allow you to run the club in the way that suits you and your venue.
There are some essentials that we ask of all venue hosts:
Step 1: Register your venue on our website.
Step 2: Search for a volunteer near you using the tool on our site. You could also ask parents or people in your local community to help. They will then need to register on our site as volunteers.
Step 3: Meet your volunteers to organise the club and check their DBS statement (or equivalent).
Step 4: Get your club activated! Just log in to your Club Hub and add volunteers to your club using their email address.
Step 5: Use the free Code Club projects, which are step-by-step guides for the children to follow, to run the club sessions.
”My advice to anyone else working in a library and considering starting a Code Club would be: go for it, what have you got to lose? It’s a really great experience to see the children engaged and learning at a Club they have chosen to come to.”
Charmain Osbourne, Club Host, Ipswich County Library
