Broaden the horizons of local children by teaching them to code, volunteer weekly with Oxford Hub's Code Club.
Weekdays after school or Saturday mornings
Libraries and schools around Oxford
Code Clubs are run by volunteers in communities all across the world and give children the opportunity to learn to code, no matter who they are or where they come from. Coding is becoming an increasingly vital skill for everyone, and knowledge of coding can open up a creative world of new opportunities for a child.
We work in small teams together and run sessions in local libraries or schools for an hour once a week. Volunteers are trained and given the resources through Oxford Hub to facilitate the sessions, so that you don't already have to be a coding whizz to get involved. The children are encouraged to build up their knowledge in small stages- so it's a great way for volunteers to learn new skills too!

Oxford Hub's Code Clubs are for students at the University of Oxford, or Brookes Uni- if you are not a student, visit www.codeclub.org.uk
You don't need to know how to code
There's no doubt a knowledge of coding could be useful - but if you've never coded before then you just need an open mind at the training we provide, as your role will be facilitating the children’s learning rather than telling them the answers. Code Club currently works with Scratch, HTML and Python.
Why not volunteer with a friend?
Volunteering for Code Club is social and you'll have the chance to meet like-minded people, but why not ask a friend to sign up with you too?
