Library volunteers

Code Club volunteer

Code Club is a nationwide network of free volunteer-led coding lessons for children aged 9-11 years old.

What will I be doing?

As a Code Club volunteer, you'll:

  • Supervise children when they're at the club.
  • Present workshops to groups of children using Scratch and Python.
  • Work with children in small groups on specific projects.
  • Promote the Code Club.  

What skills or experience do I need?

If you'd like to a Code Club volunteer, you'll need to:

  • Be confident with computers.
  • Have the patience, enthusiasm and communication skills to encourage a joy of digital making.
  • Be friendly and welcoming.
  • Have a non-judgemental attitude. 

You don't have to be a coding genius to volunteer as most clubs start with simple programs, such as Scratch. But you do need to be willing to learn.

How much time do I need to give?

Code Clubs are 1 or 2 hours long and take place at the same time every week, fortnight or month.

You'll need to commit to a group of sessions and stay for the whole duration.

Which library will I volunteer at?

We run Code Clubs at a number of libraries in the borough.

Please contact us to find out where the current groups are held. We can work together on where the best fit would be for you. In some cases, we may create a new Code Club at your preferred library.
