CoderDojo is a loosely connected global network of freevolunteer-led,community-based programming clubs for young people. The volunteers are usually a mix of technical mentors and nontechnical volunteers. CoderDojo is based on the belief 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. Any young person aged 7–17 can join and attend a Dojo for free. At a Dojo, they will learn skills such as building a website, or creating an app or a game, and explore technology in an informal, creative, and social environment. Visit the website to find a club near you or to start a Dojo in your community.
