At Code Club Canada, we think all children should have the opportunity to learn to code.
To do this, we support a nationwide network of volunteers and educators who run free coding clubs for children aged 8-12 to build and share their ideas and learning along the way. Code Club Canada is a project with Digital Moment (formerly) Kids Code Jeunesse, a nonprofit charitable organization based in Montreal.
Founded in 2013 by Kate Arthur, Digital Moment is a Montreal-based charitable organization that focuses on creating programs and experiences for youth and their communities on digital skills like coding, algorithm and data literacy, and artificial intelligence. Digital Moment includes three educational initiatives: Kids Code Jeunesse, Digital2030, and a social innovation lab.
Code Club International currently has over 10,000 clubs in over 100 countries, and our club projects have been translated into 28 languages.
Our projects are easy to follow step-by-step guides, which help children learn Scratch, HTML & CSS and Python by making games, animations, and websites. There’s no need for the adult running the session to be a computing expert. The projects gradually introduce coding concepts to allow children to build their knowledge incrementally.
Code Club was founded in 2012, and in 2015 joined forces with the Raspberry Pi Foundation, a registered UK charity. Code Club is a key educational programme for the Foundation, working to help many more young people learn how to build their ideas with code.
