Organisation aims / mission / values

  • The CoderDojo movement believes that an understanding of programming languages is increasingly important in the modern world, that it’s both better and easier to learn these skills early, and that nobody should be denied the opportunity to do so.
    To that end, we’ve built a global network of free, volunteer-led, community-based programming clubs for young people. Anyone aged seven to seventeen can visit a Dojo where they can learn to code, build a website, create an app or a game, and explore technology in an informal, creative, and social environment.
  • CoderDojo and the CoderDojo Foundation share the same vision: every child worldwide should have the opportunity to learn code and to be creative with technology in a safe & social environment.
  • We support Dojos around the world; sustain and support CoderDojo’s growth; and source new champions, mentors, and partners. We also facilitate communication and collaboration across the movement and ensure that all community members have the tools & content needed to start and run Dojos. Finally, we help to develop a consistent, rich, fun and cool learning environment at Dojos.

How we deliver these aims

Enabling We create resources, like best practice guides and educational materials, and build tools to aid our community in collaboration and communication. Engaging We support the awesome CoderDojo community by handling support requests, verifying Dojos to appear on our site for prospective attendees and mentors to find, and facilitating knowledge sharing and discussion. Scaling We negotiate and manage international partnerships to benefit the CoderDojo community and spread the CoderDojo brand and philosophy of open, free and child-centric learning around the world. Awareness We build awareness of CoderDojo and the benefits of learning code by representing the movement at major national and international events. We also facilitate two annual CoderDojo events: DojoCon and Coolest Projects. CoderDojo is part of the Raspberry Pi Foundation: RASPBERRY PI FOUNDATION UK REGISTERED CHARITY 1129409
