Resources to help you get Back to Dojo

It’s that time of year again when many Dojos return from break. It can be a busy month for a lot of people, so we have a special comprehensive guide to help you restart your Dojo! 

For the next four weeks, our Back to Dojo series will highlight helpful resources that you may need for your Dojo, from planning your first session to promoting inclusivity in your club. 

Check below for our schedule for the next month, including all of the links to our resources.

 

Week 1: Planning and promoting

Week 2: First sessions back

For this week, we will be sharing resources that will help you get back into the swing of things, including new projects, group activities, and much more!

  • What better way to get to know your Ninjas than with some cool icebreakers? This is a fantastic way to reintroduce your club members if you are returning to sessions after a break or to meet each other for the first time. 
  • Not sure what projects to start with? Our new Introduction to Scratch path offers a useful step-by-step projects that develop young people’s independence over time.
  • Want to try something new with young people? Give them a taster for HTML/CSS with these one pager projects (1. Photo gallery, 2. Style a page, 3. Animation). If they enjoy those, then it’s time to check out our new HTML project path

Week 3: Volunteers 

This week, we’ll highlight our resources that will help with recruiting volunteers and training. Find out about our safeguarding module and tips for looking after your mental health.

Week 4: Inclusivity 

Inclusivity is at the heart of the CoderDojo Ethos. So this week will be about how to promote inclusivity in your Dojos. 

We’ll be sharing all of these great resources on our socials, using the hashtag #BackToDojo.
