CoderDojo Silicon Valley is an all-volunteer organization that offers free programing instruction to youth, ages 7-17. Young people learn how to code, create games, develop websites, make mobile apps, and more!

We are having a great year! More kids, more seats, more sessions, and best of all fewer kids on a waitlist. Your support has helped us grow, your continued support will help more kids who want to code.

Kids love to create, learn, and be challenged. Through programming, kids give life to their ideas using a process that requires analyses and creative problem solving. They discover solutions to intellectual challenges while creating fun projects they can share with family and friends. 

Your donations provide the learning opportunities we offer. As an all-volunteer organization, all gifts are greatly valued. Whether it is a cash donation that helps us finance our operation or the donation of expertise to help us build content or the gift of time to guide a child through a challenge or staffing an event, each gift is significant.

Because the generosity of you and others, we have been able to add neighborhood dojos and a dojo for advanced coders. We are looking forward to serving more areas in Silicon Valley.

What makes CoderDojo Silicon Valley great!
