About Code Club
Code Club is an international network of free, volunteer-led after school coding clubs for children aged 9-13.
At Code Club, we think all children should have the opportunity to learn to code, no matter who they are or where they come from.
We support an international network of volunteers and educators who run free, extra-curricular coding clubs for children aged 9-13. Clubs are run in a range of venues, from schools to community centres, and provide a space for children to learn about digital skills and coding in a safe, fun environment.
We provide easy to follow coding projects which help children learn Scratch, HTML & CSS and Python by making games, animations and websites. The projects gradually introduce coding concepts to allow children to grow their understanding of digital making. This gradual approach also means there's no need for the adult running the session to be a computing expert.
Currently there are over 12,000 clubs in over 160 countries, and our club projects have been translated into 28 languages. We also have local partners running Code Club in 12 countries around the world.

What does a Code Club look like?
We work with volunteers and educators across the world to inspire the next generation to get excited about computing and digital making. From Brazil to Bangladesh, thousands of kids have learned to code using our projects.
