Summary

In 2017, the CoderDojo Foundation joined forces with the Raspberry Pi Foundation. Together, we are part of the largest worldwide code club movement that works to put the power of computing and digital making into the hands of young people all over the world. We want to help kids and teens realise that they can build a positive future through coding. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to learn to code and that an understanding of programming languages is important.

Challenge

Quite simply children are not being given the opportunity to learn how to code! In the USA, less than 2.4% of students graduate with a computer science degree. In Europe, computer science has a higher drop out rate than any other 3rd level degree. CoderDojo coding clubs are not only addressing this global skills gap at its root cause but through Dojos children are developing creative, practical and logical problem-solving skills and filling voids left by many education systems worldwide.

Solution

CoderDojo is a global 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.

Long-Term Impact

Within the CoderDojo Movement there is a focus on peer learning, youth mentoring and self-led learning. We aim to help young people realise that they can build a positive future through coding and community. To date, hundreds of thousands of young people have learnt how to code through the CoderDojo movement.
