DC has a number of Coder Dojos were you can work with kids as a mentor or volunteer.

Dojos can always use volunteers and mentors for sessions – even if you don’t code! You can join a current dojo, or start your own.


The Coder Dojo Foundation is headquartered in Ireland, but they support Dojos all over the world. You can see a list of Dojos near you at https://zen.coderdojo.com/find.



Coder Dojo is a growing community of 2221 free, open and local programming clubs for young people. They host DojoCons around the world, as well as “Coolest Projects” where young people can show off their work.

James Whelton cofounded the Coder Dojo Foundation in 2013 with a vision that “every child worldwide should have the opportunity to learn code and to be creative with technology in a safe & social environment.┬áIn 2017, the CoderDojo Foundation joined forces with the Raspberry Pi Foundation.
