About us

The CoderDojo Foundation is a Dublin-based educational charity that works to give every child the opportunity to learn how to code and create with technology. We do this through supporting the volunteer-led CoderDojo movement. Founded in July 2011, the movement is based on open-source principles, meaning that anyone anywhere in the world can start a Dojo. Clubs (Dojos) run all over the world on a regular basis, giving young people between the ages of 7 and 17 the opportunity to learn how to build websites, apps, programs, and games, and to explore technology.

The first Dojo was started seven years ago, and there are now more than 1900 active Dojos in 100 countries, giving 55000 young people the opportunity to learn how to code in a fun, social environment. We are part of the Raspberry Pi Foundation family, and together we represent one of the largest sustained, global efforts to help young people learn computing and digital making. You can read more about our mission, values, and goals in our 2018–2020 strategy.

The CoderDojo Foundation staff is a team of fifteen people based in Dublin. Our offices are in Dogpatch Labs, a co-working space in the city centre, where we also run a Dojo for local young people twice a month. We are passionate about education and technology. We are also known for playing card games over lunch. If you are looking to have a real-world impact, then this is the organisation and role for you. Find more information about our team here.
