What we do
At Code Club, we think all children should have the opportunity to learn to code, no matter who they are or where they come from. We work with a global community of volunteers, educators, and partners to run free coding clubs where 9 to 13-year-olds build and share their ideas.
We believe in learning through making, and our coding projects offer young people plenty of opportunities to be creative and to share their creations with each other.
We provide free resources and support
Our projects are free and open to all. They are easy-to-follow, step-by-step guides that young people use to make their own games, animations, and websites with coding languages such as Scratch, HTML/CSS, and Python.
The projects introduce coding concepts one by one and let young people progressively build their knowledge. Adults running the clubs don’t need to be experienced coders, and many volunteers in our community enjoy learning alongside their club members.
We provide help and support to clubs and volunteers through online training, community events, and a help desk. We also offer lots of additional useful resources, such as downloadable certificates and posters, and we regularly run competitions and prize draws to keep our clubs inspired and connected.
What is a Code Club?
Code Club and the Raspberry Pi Foundation
Code Club is a programme run by the Raspberry Pi Foundation, a registered UK charity. Together, we are part of a growing worldwide movement that is working to put the power of computing and digital making into the hands of people all over the world.
Impact and mission
There are currently over 12000 clubs in over 160 countries, supporting over 180000 young people learning to code each week.
Our projects have been translated into 28 languages. We work closely with Code Club partners in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Croatia, France, New Zealand, Spain, South Korea and Ukraine to reach more young people and grow our community of educators and volunteers.
To put a Code Club in every community in the world.
To give every child the skills, confidence, and opportunity to change their world.
