Redhill Code Club - Volunteers / Co-Leader
Redhill Code Club runs on the first Saturday of every month at Redhill Library, 2-4pm.
We cater for students 7-14yrs who are interested in learning to code in Scratch and Python and programme MicroBits.
We have c.20 students currently and have been growing every month since we re-started in late-2021. We are an energetic club, but with only one club leader, we are reaching our capacity limits, so are looking for new volunteers to get involved and help to ensure we can run the club each month, continue to take new students, and also to bring new energy and ideas.
We use the excellent library of online resources provided by the Rapberry Pi foundation, so have loads of high quality materials to be used at sessions, so really just need people who are keen to spend 2 hours once a month helping students with ideas and inspiration and to problem solve with them when they get stuck on projects.
What skills do I need?
- Good basic understanding of computing to help students connect to the internet and get started on our online projects
- Enjoy working with 7-14yr old students, guiding and inspiring them
Optional, but useful:
- Experience of Scratch (scratch.mit.edu) and Python coding
- Project ideas - we have started to do some mixing of code with external electronics, so more ideas and help on this would be great
- Interested in co-leading the club (current leader could do with the support and very happy to share responsibilities!)

The club runs for 2 hours on the first Saturday of every month. No expectation of additional work outside the sessions. No need to be able to attend every session - we're keen to build up a set of volunteers who can help and support when available.
