How to Create & Promote your First Dojo Back!
As part of our #BackToDojo series we show you how to create and promote your first Dojo back!
First create your ticketed event on the community platform. Dojo Champions and those with Dojo Admin rights can create events (and recurring events). See how below!
Once you have published your event, you can share it on your social media accounts, as shown in the gif. Be sure you have your social media accounts linked in your Dojo profile, so people who search for and find your Dojo via the map can follow any updates!
You can also embed the event on your Dojo website or blog!
Publicise your Dojo & recruit mentors
See our flyers available here! You can also create your own social media banners for free using canva. Check out the gif below to see how you can upload images and combine them with text and other elements to create awesome images to recruit mentors in your area. This handy video can explain to them ‘How to be a Mentor’ and once they have registered on the community platform they can avail of our E-learning modules which go into more detail.
Making it easier for Parents
You can make it easier for parents to book tickets for your Dojo by sharing this informative video when promoting your event. There are also pdf instructions available in English, Spanish and Greek. Feel free to print them out to help parents learn how to book tickets for your next Dojo.
As mentors and youths book in you will be able to assess how big your Dojo will be and the amount of resources or additional volunteers you might need. Dojo Admin can also check in Ninjas as they arrive at the Dojo. By checking them in they will automatically be awarded attendance badges!
Did you know if your Dojo is currently using Eventbrite you can connect it to your Dojo page on the CoderDojo Platform? Find out more about the benefits and how you can connect your Dojo Page so that more ninjas can find and attend your events here!
