Star Clubs have committed to sharing their expertise to help grow the Code Club community. They do this through hosting visits from VIPs, contributing to online discussions and hosting training sessions for new volunteers. They are also happy to have visits from potential volunteers who would like to experience a club before they start.
Funsi, a new volunteer in Nottingham, told us how visiting a club really helped her on the road to getting up and running as a volunteer:
“I got to observe the club in action as they created a game on Scratch – for instance I observed how the children supported each other. Also I had the chance to interact with some children by asking what aspect(s) of the programme they liked and why. So, yes it was worth visiting to see how a club runs!”
