Derry CoderDojo is a local voluntary group who hold fortnightly sessions (Saturday 11am-1pm) to teach young people essential coding skils.  We are looking for both permanent mentors who will help out at our sessions and short-term mentors to host a Code Camp over the half-term holiday, 26th-30th Oct, 10am-2pm. Computing experience is not necessary but a keen interest in programming, robotics, web development, design or gaming is desirable.  All necessary training will be provided. This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone looking for experience working with young people or networking within the tech industry.

We are always in need of extra mentors to help out at our sessions and external events. If you would be interested, please get in touch with us using the form below. Let us know what skills/technologies you know/are interested in. We are open to trying new topics that we haven’t previously taught.

One of our existing mentors will then get in touch to give you further information on Derry CoderDojo and having an Access NI check completed.

If you know anyone who would consider becoming a mentor, please share this post with them.

Students at University of Ulster should note that mentoring at Derry CoderDojo is an accredited EDGE Award activity.
