Are you interested in inspiring the coders of tomorrow? What better way to share your passion then facilitating a local Hamilton Code Club!
Hamilton Code Clubs is a program that was designed to spark an interest in tech to students in grades 4 â€“ 8. It is currently being offered through the Industry-Education Council (IEC) of Hamilton, in partnership with Software Hamilton, and is actively recruiting post-secondary volunteers that would be willing to assist in introducing simple software programming to our program participants.
We are looking for individuals that could assist with facilitating and mentoring the following programs:
– 6-week core Hamilton Code Clubs (approximately one hour a week, for 6 weeks)
– Saturday sessions (approximately 3.5 hours)
– Daytime and evening courses delivered at 225 King William Street (approximately 1-2 hours)
Volunteer mentors will receive the web-based platforms (i.e.: LightBot, HopScotch, Scratch, and Khan Academy) as well as the necessary information and support as they deliver a club.
This is your opportunity to mentor our future tech professionals, in a fun and interactive learning environment. Contact us to join numerous other folks, just like you, who have made a commitment to inspiring and introducing students to software programming!
