Would you like to help young people create animations, design websites or make video games? It is easy to do – just join up with your local Code Club. Code Club helps children (8-13yrs old) learn the basics of coding, opening them up to a world of digital possibilities through fun online projects! To help out you don’t need to be a computer whizz, just know the basics.

What will I do?  With other volunteers, you will support up to 12 children complete short but fun coding projects for an hour in weekly sessions. You will take the register, help kids understand what they are trying to do and help them focus on the task at hand.

Why should I do it? You will help young people get interested and involved in coding, a useful and employable skill later on in life. You will also learn new skills with free training and gain experience working with young people.

Who should I be? You don’t need to an expert on a computer, just be willing to do a short online course in coding. You should be patient and enjoy teaching young people new skills.

Where will I be? Code Clubs are springing up all over the city – you can even suggest a venue on the Code Club website - www.codeclub.org.uk/. The Southmead Club meets at the Library, Greystoke Ave, Bristol BS10 6AS.

When do you need me? Southmead Code Club currently runs once a week, 3.45-4.45 on a Friday. If you could offer a different time, register on the code club website.

Anything else I should know… You will have to have a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check if you are working with children.

How do I sign up!  You must sign up on the code club website, www.codeclub.org.uk or email Nia Crouch on [email protected].

If you would like to set up another Code Club in Southmead or for more ways to get involved in your community, contact Serge Chapman on 07756 908525 or email [email protected]
