CoderDojo is a global movement of free, volunteer-led, community based programming clubs for young people. In Brussels, CoderDojo sessions have been running for the last two years, under the umbrella of CoderDojo Belgium.
At a Dojo, young people, between 7 and 17, learn how to code, develop websites, apps, programs, games and explore technology in an informal and creative environment. In addition to learning to code attendees meet like minded people and are exposed to the possibilities of technology. Within the CoderDojo Movement there is a focus on community, peer learning, youth mentoring and self led learning, with an emphasis on showing how coding is a force for change in the world.
In Belgium, CoderDojo is already going strong in the Flemish region, and we are keen to expand the amount and number of locations of our sessions in the Brussels region - there a lot of kids that are keen to participate! Any organisation that can provide spaces with internet access on Saturdays, or individuals interested to start new sessions or contribute to existing ones are more than welcome to contact us.
