Thank you for your interest in joining the CoderDojo community! Due to the coronavirus pandemic, there are different restrictions in place across the world. Please follow the appropriate public health advice for your country or region before planning in-person club events.

If you are ready to hold in-person club events soon, please register your details and we will be in touch.

If you’re not able to start your Dojo in person yet, there are many other ways that you can get involved in the meantime. Check out the exciting opportunities for young people, parents, volunteers, and educators to learn and get creative with tech through Digital Making at Home from the Raspberry Pi Foundation.

What does it mean to volunteer at a Dojo?

There are 12,000 volunteers in 2297 Dojos, and they do all sorts of things to help their clubs.

You do not need to be a programmer to mentor at a Dojo! A lot of mentors are attendees' parents who have no technical experience at all when they start. Dojos benefit from having mentors with different skills, backgrounds, and levels of knowledge who provide support and encouragement to CoderDojo youth (Ninjas). The clubs also need general volunteers who focus on organising the events. The easiest way to see what volunteering is like: watch our video, and find a Dojo event to drop by to discover in person how a Dojo works!

“When I see them do things on their own, getting their ideas out there. It really gives me so much enjoyment.”

How much time do I need to put in?

You can attend your Dojo’s events to help out for a couple of hours, whether they are weekly, fortnightly, or monthly.

How much technical expertise do I need?

It's OK to have no technical experience, or lots of experience, or anything in between — there will be something useful you can do for your local Dojo. All help is appreciated!
