Do you know someone aged 9 to 14 who wants to learn computer coding skills for web, app, and game design? Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KFPL) invites them to join their Coder Dojo program, a fun, welcoming environment for children and teens to work with volunteer mentors to learn the skills of interest to them.
According to a release from KFPL, mentors will support youth participants in developing skills in a project of their choosing, and/or inspire them to investigate new skills and languages to further their coding journey.
“We are excited to be opening up a new session for Coder Dojo,” said Kristen Lemay, Teen and New Adult Services Librarian. “Pairing new coders with skilled volunteers allows our community to connect in a way that is beneficial for both groups. New coders help our volunteers become better mentors, and our volunteers help these young coders expand their knowledge.”
The program is a four-week, virtual series starting Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2022. Free registration is required, and registering for the first session will automatically sign participants up for the duration of the program, KFPL said.
