Mentoring

Call for Mentors

At a CoderDojo session, young people learn how to write code, develop websites, apps, games and more. Dojos are setup, run by and taught by volunteers. All this is completely free to participants.

About 50 kids come to each session to learn about web technologies and programming. Topics include HTML/CSS, Scratch, Python, AppInventor, Minecraft modding and Arduino/Raspberry Pi.

We are always looking for extra mentors to join our team of volunteers, to help the kids learn and come up with new ideas.  It’s a great opportunity to get involved in a fun, creative, and worthwhile youth movement.
