CODERDOJO

Giving kids and young people all over the world better access to the Magic behind the technology that surrounds us and touches almost everything that we do in our lives, CoderDojo is a volunteer led, global community of free programming clubs for young people. Clubs called Dojos run all over the world on a regular basis, giving young people between the ages of 5 and 17 the opportunity to learn how to develop computer code, websites, apps, programs, games, digital media and to explore technology. 

Within the CoderDojo Movement there is a focus on community, peer learning, youth mentoring and self led learning,  with an emphasis on showing how coding is a force for change in the world.
