Volunteers Needed: Coding Club is run entirely by parent volunteers. Please consider signing up to help. It is only a one hour a week commitment for duration of the eight week session. We ask that volunteers commit to attending at least 6 of the 8 sessions. We need at least 4-5 parents at each session, so there will be plenty of room for all who want to volunteer. It’s an amazing experience to see these kids learn how computers work and to build code themselves. You must be cleared through to volunteer through Wake County Schools but no prior coding experience necessary. Please email if you have additional questions or would like to sign up firstname.lastname@example.org.
