    CoderDojo is a global network of free computer programming clubs for young people. It gives you an opportunity to help kids learn how to code.  The program is for kids from 7 to 17 YO. I'm mentoring the youngest ones. They learn principals of programming using a software developed by MIT especially for kids (its called Scratch), you don't really need to know any programming language to use it. There are Dojos in more than 60 countries (I strongly recommend you to find one around to you and make a visit). I volunteer at the one in the Brisbane Library.
