** This project is currently not accepting new volunteer applications**Code Club UK is a nationwide network of volunteers and educators who run free coding clubs for young people aged 9 - 13. We are a key educational programme of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, a charity that aims to empower people to learn digital making skills.
We're looking for a group of 3 - 4 students to volunteer to run a club at their local primary school, library, or community centre for an hour a week. (You don't have to sign up as a group as we will help arrange that.) Someone from the venue will be there to support you too.
To volunteer at a Code Club you need to:
• be available for one hour a week to help with a Code Club session in a local school, library or community venue.
• commit to volunteering for at least one term
• have time to prepare for the Code Club session each week. This may include organising resources and completing the project you will be doing with the children in advance
• undertake a DBS check which we will help to arrange
• be happy to collaborate with the contact at the venue to make the club run smoothly
• be confident with computers. You don’t have to be a coding genius, most clubs start with simple programs like Scratch, but you need to be willing to learn
We provide the materials you need to get children excited about digital making plus free online training.

We have Code Clubs running in a variety of locations in Nottingham and a waiting list of venues eager to start. We will help you find a location that suits you.
