CoderDojo is an open source, volunteer-led, global movement of free coding clubs for 7-17 year-old kids. While each dojo shares the ethos of CoderDojo there is no typical dojo and the activities vary from club to club. However they all teach young people about coding, and how to develop software, as well as themselves, and explore technology by working with others and presenting their work.
All dojos are inherently different and are influenced by the coordinators and volunteers who facilitate them. There is a focus on community, peer learning, youth mentoring and self-led learning with an emphasis on openness, helping others and showing how coding is a force for change in the world.
CoderDojo is about learning together, supporting each other and sharing your knowledge. Our mentors are here to help and challenge you. Come and have fun.
