Committee of Mentors Launch

Taking CoderDojo Community Involvement to the Next Level

A new committee of mentors has been assembled to help discuss core issues that CoderDojo faces, with a small batch of representatives supported by the Hello World Foundation.  The primary purpose is to help advise the Hello World Foundation on the needs of the CoderDojo community  and to give feedback on proposed resource development among other areas.

James Wheltons email of 19th July:

New champions and mentors really wanted to connect with experienced champions who had perhaps set up more than one CoderDojo. But most of all people wanted to know where to go and who to talk to if they wanted to get involved in group or national events.

At Hello World Foundation we have tried to assist by manning a support line at [email protected], this has solved a lot of initial queries, but we feel more can be done. We would love to support a structured group of active, self selecting coordinators/champions/mentors at a national/international level.
