Code Club provides everything you need to volunteer at a free Code Club for 9 - 13 year olds, which could take place at a school, library, or community venue in your local area.
You don’t need to be a coding genius to volunteer, you just need to be willing to learn some basic Scratch, Python, or HTML alongside your club. In fact, using our projects with young people is a great way for you to learn new skills whilst inspiring the next generation of coders and digital makers.
Essential info for volunteers:
Step 1: Register on our website.
Step 2: Apply for your background check—we will guide you through the process.
Step 3: Complete our free simple online training, or attend a training session in your local area.
Step 4: Connect with a club host at a venue near you using the search tool on our site.
Step 5: Meet the venue’s club host and organise the club.
Step 6: Ask the club host to add you to the club via their Club Hub.
Step 7: Use the Code Club projects, which are step-by-step guides for the children to follow, to run the club sessions.
Step 8: Check out the extra resources for active clubs in your Club Hub.
Please note: unfortunately we cannot cover expenses for our volunteers.
”I think Code Club is brilliant, and my favourite moments are when the kids’ eyes light up when they get something right, or they have a new experience with technology that is fun and creative.”
