CoderDojo will hold free coding workshops for kids in 70 locations in The Netherlands. Each location will average a size of 30 kids and run on a monthly basis. Children will be shown the basics of technology and taught the necessary skill to be able to move around safely in a digital world. They will be challenged to overcome boundaries and let their creativity flow. Within de next two years we will grow to at least 140 locations with a minimum of 2 locations in every province. Finally CoderDojo Nederland commits to organising 2 meetups per year for volunteers to share knowledge and experience.

CoderDojo Nederland

CoderDojo commits to teaching children the basics of digital literacy through programming on in a volunteer led club. At CoderDojo all children ages 7 to 17 are welcome to free coding sessions in different locations around the country. We try to reach as many children as possible and want to teach them about programming and the technology behind every day devices. Currently within The Netherlands we average 2,100 children every month in almost 70 locations.

Qualitative Impact

We work in a non-curriculum based environment in which children get to explore technology through their own interests and passions. This way we can show them how technology works, what the risks are and most importantly give them a way to express themselves creatively in a digital world.
