Code Club World
Volunteer-led coding clubs for children aged 7-13.
8,000 Code Clubs running in 10 countries.
It appears possible to create a club even without a local partner in the country:
Help us inspire the next generation of digital makers by establishing a Code Club.
Code Clubs are weekly extra-curricular coding clubs for 7-13 year olds. Children learn to create games, animations and websites using our specially created resources, with the support of awesome volunteers.
As a Code Club volunteer, you’ll play a key part in helping children gain useful skills; not just in coding, but in problem solving, planning, designing and collaboration.
- Running a club takes just 1 hour a week, so it’s easy to start supporting young people in your community.
- No previous coding experience is needed.
- You’ll gain great volunteering experience and transferable skills.

Started in 2013, CoderDojo is a worldwide movement 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.
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.
There were 2 Coder Dojo’s in Indonesia, but no evidence that either are active, but the SMK is an Information Technology (IT) vocational school!
Note: CoderDojo & Code Club are partners. https://coderdojo.com/supporters/

You’re totally capable, no matter your tech skills, of starting your own Dojo. Let us help you get started!
Starting your own Dojo is fun and rewarding. Making the choice to grow a community and join thousands of community members worldwide will forge lifelong skills and friendships. It’s easy to follow our step by step guide to getting started when you jump in now!
CoderDojo Champions are passionate, driven (not always techie!) volunteers to take charge of setting up, running and maintaining a Dojo. Often Co-Champions these responsibilities.
The first step to having a verified Dojo and being a Champion is registering on this website!
Find your team
A Dojo needs a team of volunteers. Usually a mix of technical Mentors and non-technical Volunteers. We recommend a ratio of 1 Mentor to 8 young people, but it’s up to you!
Find your venue
Location is vital for running a successful Dojo. You need a venue with power sockets, internet access, tables and chairs. Try local community spaces, offices, and educational institutions. However, you cannot host Dojo’s in private residences.
Plan your dojo
Meet with your team, pick a date and plan the first few sessions. There lots of learning resources [http://kata.coderdojo.com] available on this website you can create your own if you need something else.
Promote your Dojo
Setup communications (e.g. email and Twitter) specifically for your Dojo. Consider inviting young people via local schools or youth groups. You can also set up ticketing on the CoderDojo website to know who to expect on the day and ensure they’ll fit in the venue!
Once you’ve registered and been verified, put together a plan, your team is prepped and you have a group eager to become CoderDojo Ninjas then you’re ready to begin the real fun!

Where to start?
Our initial inclination is to trial the first clubs in areas with enthusiastic technology professionals, so that they can experience the clubs and provide guidance on which club resources work best in an Indonesian setting.
