Volunteers are needed to help out at Bootle computer club for kids, but you don’t have to be an expert in tech.
Little Sandbox is a tech club for kids interested in computer programming, electronics, robotics, animation and other digital media.
It’s for the tinkerers, the thinkers and those with an active interest in how this modern world works, and they are looking for volunteers to help inspire the next generation of inventors and creators. The volunteers are needed for Little Sandbox’s Kilobytes Club, which if for 8-12 year olds and takes place on Wednesdays between 5.30pm and 7.30pm.
It would be great, but not essential, if volunteers had:
-some knowledge/skills related to computer programming or electronics, or
-some experience of working with kids
The club is quite informal, with the young people working on their own projects, rather than in a structured learning environment. This means that volunteers don’t necessarily need a lot of tech skills to be involved. Volunteers could just be keeping an eye on participants or actively helping them with their projects, depending on their level of skills/knowledge.
Volunteers would need to be aged 16 or over and, because the activities are kid-led, this could be ideal for someone looking to develop skills/experience around playwork. Similarly, it would be great opportunity for someone who loves tech and is keen to share their skills and knowledge with others.
