Volunteering

Everything you need to know about Code Club volunteering.

Can I find a club to volunteer at on your website?
You can use our website to search for Code Clubs in your area that are looking for a volunteer. Once you sign up as a volunteer, you can use the club search page to find Code Clubs near you, then message the club organiser to enquire about helping at their club.
