Learn new skills whilst inspiring the next generation of coders and digital makers
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.
Code Club provides everything you need to volunteer at a free Code Club for 9 - 13 year olds at a school in your local area.
- Commit for a minimum of 12 weeks
- Spend 1 hour per week, usually after school
- Help around 15 young people aged 9-13 to use the Code Club projects
- Volunteer solo, or team up with friends or colleagues and take turns
- A club host will be there at the venue to support you
