Description

Volunteering at Tralee CoderDojo (TCDJ) is a very rewarding experience and might not require as much as you think. Recruiting volunteers to mentor our Dojo ninjas is essential to the success of a Dojo. The TCDJ club operates from the fantastic modern facilities at Tralee IT North Campus.

TCDJ is constantly on the lookout for new volunteers to help out presenting material to our Ninjas and guiding them as they explore different technologies. You get an opportunity to help the children and students in our community to learn how to code and you get an opportunity to learn new skills and technologies also.

There are enormous benefits for students who volunteer and present material to the children during our TCDJ sessions at IT Tralee. Along with enhancing your presentation skills, volunteers get the opportunity to access and establish a broader working and industry network through the ITT at Tralee and also volunteers enhance their CV through the additional accreditation of including their fantastic voluntary work at TCDJ. We have various well established Business People who interact, visit and speak at TCDJ from time to time. For IT Tralee students, time spent volunteering with TCDJ can also count towards the President's Civic Spirit Award - http://www.ittralee.ie/en/InformationAbout/Community/CommunityEngagement/PresidentsCivicSpiritAward/. Students and volunteers can certainly strengthen their CV offering in this manner.

Whether you are a pro at Python, can write HTML blindfolded or love tinkering with hardware like Raspberry Pi or Lego Mindstorms, your knowledge, experience and assistance would be very welcome at Tralee CoderDojo!
