Information for Volunteers

To volunteer at a Code Club you need to

  • Be available for up to one hour a week to help with a Code Club session in a local school, library or community venue

  • Commit to volunteering for at least one school term (12 weeks)

  • Have time to prepare for the Code Club session. This may include organising, printing resources and completing the project you will be doing with the children in advance

  • Be happy to collaborate with the contact at the venue to make the club run smoothly

  • Be confident with computers. You don’t have to be a coding genius, most clubs start with simple programs like Scratch, but you need to be willing to learn

Please note: unfortunately we cannot cover expenses for our volunteers. You are not allowed to charge for your club. Code Club is always free for children to attend.
