A Code Club in every community

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 children aged 9 and above can learn to build and share their ideas.

Our mission

Our mission is to put a Code Club in every community in the world. We believe in learning through making, and our coding projects offer young people opportunities to be creative and to share their creations with each other.

You can start a Code Club anywhere in the world! We also have local teams in the UK, Ireland, the USA, and India, and work closely with Code Club partners in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Croatia, France, Iraq, New Zealand, South Korea, and Ukraine to reach more young people, educators, and volunteers. You can see stories from the global community over on the Code Club blog.

What happens at a club?

At the club sessions, young people use free, step-by-step project guides specially created by us. Club organisers provide support to help the young people progress through our projects, to create games, animations, and web pages using Scratch, Python, or HTML/CSS.

We provide free resources

Our projects are step-by-step guides that help young people to make their own games, animations, and websites with code.

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 coding alongside their club members.

Club leaders and volunteers can access lots of useful resources, such as downloadable certificates and posters, and our team provides help and support through online workshops, community events, and an online help desk.
