Get Involved

There are plenty of ways you can support our mahi.

Volunteers!

Learn new skills and inspire the next generation of superstar coders and digital innovators. You don’t need to be an expert either, just willing to learn some basic Scratch, Python and HTML alongside the young people in your club.


Code Club provides the project material which is accessible through our website. Clubs usually run for one hour a week during the school term and the club host will always be present at the venue to support you.


You can sign up as a solo volunteer or you can team up with friends and support the club together. Getting your organisation involved with volunteering at a code club is a great way to up-skill staff, build team relationships and meet social responsibility goals by giving back to the community.


Volunteer

Teachers!

Our Code Club projects and classroom-ready resources are aligned to the New Zealand Digital Technologies Curriculum.


Digital Technologies and Hangarau Matihiko help students see their potential as creators of technology, not just users; we want to introduce teachers to programming, help grow their confidence and encourage them to lead fun, engaging school-based code clubs. Our resources and learning materials familiarise teachers with computational thinking, which they can pass to students in the classroom or at a school code club.


Start Your Own Club

Librarians!

Hosting a club at your library is an excellent way to get the tamariki in your communities coding and engaging with digital technologies! It’s also the perfect opportunity to put any tablets, desktop computers and 3D printers to use if you have them.


All you need to start a club is space in the library that’s safe for learning, access to wifi and one hour a week for the session. We can help with volunteer support and police vetting.


Librarians needn’t facilitate every session— volunteers usually take the lead here, however we recommend looking through our projects and giving them a go. You might find you’re able to run the initial sessions without any volunteer support!


Start Your Own Club

Parents!

Getting involved with Code Club is easy, you can enrol your child in a club through our website and the leader will be in touch about enrollment and your childs first session.

Many parents also find themselves wanting to volunteer at their childs club. Check out our Code Club projects and give them a go yourself!

We recommend all parents talk to their children about online safety before their first session. Head to Netsafe.org.nz for a wealth of information to help keep your child safe online. The Raspberry Pi foundation have plenty of safeguarding resources relevant to Code Club, including a 30 minute safeguarding e-learning module.

Corporates!

Inspire the next generation of coding superstars by getting together with workmates and volunteering at a club once a week! Code Club Aotearoa helps teams to build better relationships while giving back to the local community.


Organisations are supported by our friendly staff to either connect with teachers and existing clubs or, if possible, set-up an after-school club in the work place.

Organisations will:

  • Meet social responsibility goals by giving back to the community
  • Support Code Club by committing to volunteering for a term
  • Develop leadership, empathy based and interpersonal skills essential to their jobs
