Code Club Volunteers Wanted

Code Club LogoWe are looking for volunteers with an hour a week to spare for 12 weeks to help inspire the next generation of coders in Bexley’s Libraries.

You don’t need to be a coding genius, just willing to learn some basic Scratch, Python or HTML along with the children.

Code Club UK is a nationwide network of volunteers and educators who run free coding clubs for young people aged 9-13. They provide all the project resources you need and will guide you through registering, learning how to run a club and getting a background check. Once you are ready you can use their website to connect to the host library where you would like to run a club.

Visit if you would like to know more or to take the first steps towards running a club with us.
