How to get started

Anyone can start a club. You don't need any coding or teaching experience. We have resources to support you every step of the way.

We'll support you at every step

Code Club has great projects, resources, and guides to help you get going. The first step is to be enthusiastic about making a difference!

Let's get kids coding!

Code Club believes in giving every kid the chance to code no matter their background or where they are from.

You don't need a lot of experience to start your own club. However, if you would rather volunteer at an existing club, check out our map to find a club near you accepting volunteers and contact them using their publicly accessible information.
