Please join us for a free monthly coding club for youth which meets at McMaster University. This is where youth will partner with mentors to learn how to make a website, how to make games, and how to write a computer program!
It is the policy of CoderDojo Hamilton that all participants be accompanied by an adult acting as their guardian. By participating in the event, students and guardians agree:
(1) CoderDojo Hamilton, (itâ€™s mentors, partners and sponsors) are absolved from legal action resulting in personal injury.
(2) To follow all posted rules, including those outlined in the diversity and inclusiveness declaration below.
(3) To pay for any damages to the facility caused by the result of *their familyâ€™s negligent, reckless or willful actions.
(4) I hereby grant permission to CoderDojoTo and its representatives to photograph and video me, and otherwise capture my image, and to make recordings of my voice at this event to be used anonymously on their website, social media properties, and/or in promotional material.
I agree that I am under no pressure to sign this waiver of liability and have been given time to read and understand the terms.
DIVERSITY & INCLUSIVENESS
We welcome and advocate for the presence and contributions of all people regardless of their gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, age, culture, abilities, ethnic origin, marital status, nationality, race, religion, education, or socioeconomic status.
Prejudice, oppression, and discrimination are detrimental to the growth of a rich and vibrant community. CoderDojoTo is filled with diverse participants, and supporting the visibility of such diversity enhances the experiences of all community members. As such, we value inclusiveness and vigorously defend CoderDojoTo as a safe space for all participants.
We insist that everyone who uses the spaceâ€”member or guestâ€”remains mindful of, and takes responsibility for, their speech and behavior. This includes:
– Always acting out of respect and concern for the free expression of others
– Actively listening to others and not dominating discussions
– Not making assumptions about identity, experiences, or preferred pronouns
– Not using words that are racist, sexist, homophobic, classist, cissexist or ableist
– Humbly accepting respectful correction (or correcting yourself!)
– We do not tolerate destructive, exclusionary, abusive, or silencing behavior
– The terms we use to describe our experience are always changing, and we are always learning. We are eager to maintain and defend the safety and inclusivity of this community.
If you think of something that is missing from this statement, or a way we could improve it, please send us an email at email@example.com. If you experience marginalizing or silencing behavior which limits your full participation in any CoderDojo event, please talk to a volunteer in confidence (in person or via email).
