Volunteer from anywhere in PEI. Programs offered in English and French. No coding experience required! Experience teaching or working with kids a plus. 1. KCJ WORKSHOP MENTOR: Do you enjoy the world of education and are looking for ways to give back to the community? Helping children to learn to code in the classroom is an extremely rewarding experience, especially when the “Aha, I get it!” moments occur – both from the children and the teachers. We’re looking for volunteer mentors to help in the classrooms, at workshops, and at teacher training events by instructing or supporting instructors. 2. KCJ EVENT AMBASSADOR: Are you passionate about children learning to code? If you enjoy networking with community leaders at Meetups, tech conferences, gaming conventions, university fairs and special events then we would ask you to become a representative for Kids Code Jeunesse and Code Club Canada. 3. LEAD A CODE CLUB Code Club Canada is powered by KCJ and part of the larger international Raspberry Pi community. We’ll help match you with a community venue – libraries, schools, community centres. Once signed up you will receive Code Club material, like posters and door signs. On CodeClub.ca you can access dozens of activities to keep you and the kids busy. This is a larger commitment – 8-12+ weeks – but you’ll have quite a bit of instructing autonomy and really have the chance to make a difference!
