Start a club

All you need is a venue safe for learning, and one hour a week to lead a Code Club for kids! Start up a new Code Club in your community!

Register your club

Code Club helps kids build the confidence and skills to problem solve and explore new ideas - skills they can carry through life

How to start your free club

Anyone can start a club. You don't need any coding or teaching experience to start teaching global skills in your local area.

Get started

Step 1
Organise and set up

Work through the (optional) online training, register your club and organise your devices.

Step 2
Get verified

Make sure any volunteers that are helping with your Club have their Working With Children Check.

Find your state's requirement

Step 3
Prepare

Run the club as part of your classroom activities, or after school hours. It takes an average of 45 mins to prepare for each class and one hour to facilitate.

Step 4
Week by week

Stay connected, find extra resources and ask questions from our social media community.

A day in the life

We'll support you at every step

Code Club has great projects, resources, and guides to help you get going. The first step is to be enthusiastic about making a difference!

Let's get kids coding!

Code Club believes in giving every kid the chance to code no matter what backgrounds or where they are from so having more clubs in dense areas and starting Code Clubs in remote areas would help our mission!

You don't need a lot of experience to start. Code Club has great projects, resources, and guides to help you get going. Our community of 2000+ leaders can support you along your journey! First step is to be enthusiastic about making a difference!
