Code Club is a nationwide network of free volunteer-led after school coding clubs for children aged 9-11.
We create projects for our volunteers to teach at after school coding clubs or at non-school venues such as libraries. The projects we make teach children how to program by showing them how to make computer games, animations and websites. Our volunteers go to their local club for an hour a week and teach one project a week.
