Join CoderDojo - Inspire Kids


CoderDojo is taking over the world, and we want you to join this amazing coding club. Dojos are run by Mentors, hosted by companies and attended by kids. Hays is supporting CoderDojo by helping them to achieve their target of 100 Dojos and 1,000 Mentors in Ireland by July 2013.

CoderDojo is a movement based around running free not-for-profit IT coding clubs for young people. It was set up by James Whelton, the teenage iPod Nano hacker, with entrepreneur and philanthropist Bill Liao. What started as an after-school club in the National Software Centre in Cork has exploded around the world and is now established in 21 countries including Germany, Russia, South Africa, Japan, Australia, Brazil and USA.

What do Paddy Power, Google and McAfee have in common? They have all hosted a Dojo. We would love to add your company to this list. All you need are safe premises with internet access - and if you don't have PCs available, don't worry as the kids will bring their own laptops.

If your company has an IT department, it’s likely it is full of potential CoderDojo Mentors. Why not invite your staff to get involved in this amazing initiative?

The Belfast Metropolitan College will be the venue for two exciting events:
