Get Started as a TechKids Volunteer

Step 1: Find a venue, volunteers and students for your club. If you are struggling to find a venue, you can look for venue hosts in your area with our search tool.
Step 2: Plan with your club’s venue host to decide the details of your club.
Step 3: Register your club on our website. You will receive an email directly after registering explaining how to verify your club – you’ll need to do this before you get started.!
Step 4: Use the Club projects, which are step-by-step guides for the children to follow, to run the club sessions. You don’t need to be a coding expert to run a club, but you’ll need to practice projects ahead of your TechKids Club, to make sure you can answer student questions.
Step 5: Check out the extra resources made available for verified clubs, including certificates to reward achievement and posters to help teach new coding concepts.

Please note that we as SLASSCOM cannot cover expenses or provide hardware for our volunteers.
