    What is CoderDojo?


    CoderDojo is a free computer club for kids, which started in Ireland in 2011 and grew quickly into a global community of over 1000 clubs operating in 65 countries. Starting 2013, CoderDojoTo has brought the global good vibes to young coders in the GTA and beyond. We work within communities to provide free computer workshops in fun learning environments – breaking down barriers, challenging social and economic stereotypes, and empowering youth to shape their world through code.
