We’re very excited our work with the Raspberry Pi Foundation has launched. Kindred has been tasked with helping the charity recruit volunteers to power its network of new CoderDojos. CoderDojo is a global volunteer-led movement which provides 7 to 17 year-olds with the opportunity to learn to code and create with technology at free, vibrant, local clubs.
With programming skills and understanding becoming increasingly important, particularly for young people, Kindred is thrilled to be helping launch the two brand new CoderDojo initiatives – one in Kent and one in Devon. The brand new clubs will be coming to towns and cities across both areas, including Canterbury, Ramsgate, Exeter and Totnes.
To help as many young people as possible in these areas get the chance to join a Dojo, we are looking for the following types of people to help form CoderDojo volunteer dream teams:
Through a combination of media and community relations, we will be sharing information about how volunteers who can spare just a few hours a month can get involved and grab their opportunity to develop teamwork and digital skills, meet new people and give back to the local community through helping the next generation get creative with technology.
If you, or someone you know, is passionate about inspiring young people and enthusiastic about using tech to be creative you can find out more here.
