Join our cause
Small commitment. Big Impact.
As a non-profit organization, volunteers are at the heart of everything we do. Join our mission and enrich the lives of kids across Nigeria and sub-Saharan Africa by introducing them to powerful new technologies and giving them the confidence to build a better future.
The best part of being a volunteer? You’ll learn just as much from the kids as they’ll learn from you.
Get involved and see the impact one hour of volunteering a week has on kids in your community.

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

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
