Local Partners

Help to build and grow a Code Club community in your region

Local Partners are passionate, expert organisations who use their knowledge and experience to bring Code Club to children in communities all over the world, from Brazil to South Korea. You can meet them and find out more about their work in this video.

What do we look for in a partner?

  • Not-for-profit organisation.
  • Passion for teaching young people to code.
  • Experience in recruiting and supporting volunteers.
  • Access to funding.

What is the role of a local partner?

  • Recruit and manage a community of volunteers.
  • Support those volunteers to establish and run code clubs.
  • Attend events, speak to corporations, local government and educator representatives about the importance of children learning to code.
  • Fundraise to cover programme costs.
  • Raise awareness of your community through marketing and promotion.
  • Monitor, evaluate and report the impact of your community.
Remember, if you are not yet an official local partner you cannot build a Code Club website, create a logo or secure any funding using the Code Club name. All in good time!

“Code Club is helping Brazilian children to gain new perspectives about technology, and giving them opportunities to use creativity to do amazing things. Children are having fun learning to code and bringing life to characters from their imagination.”

Felipe Fernandes, Code Club Brazil
