Volunteer Mentors are integral to the success of each CoderDojo session. All it takes is a few hours of your time over a few Fridays. If you’re bringing your child anyway, it’s even easier. Mentors should ideally possess:

  • The willingness to create and deliver content passionately and interactively
  • A desire to encourage kids to take an interest in coding
  • An ability to think on your feet – kids can ask some very interesting and challenging questions.

Anyone can be a mentor. You don’t need to be an expert in coding – all you need is a passion for helping kids learn. If you have an interest in coding, technology and programming, that’s a bonus!

The mentors’ role is to:

  • Guide and assist participants
  • Let us know of any suitable and interesting guest speakers
  • Provide feedback and input into format and content
  • Spread the word to encourage others to become volunteer mentors.
