At this months Community Call (20th September) one of the agenda items is the CoderDojo Charter. There are few additions that we are making to clarify some points that have been raised over the years since the Charter was first brought in December 2013. There will be an opportunity for people to give feedback on changes. Moving forward we will be reviewing the Charter once or twice a year to ensure it still meets its original goals, so it’s also an opportunity to propose anything additional for future iterations. If you cannot participate in this months community call, please get in touch via email or on the forums to propose any additional items for future iterations

For the purposes of this Charter, “CoderDojo” shall mean the open source, volunteer led movement orientated around running free not-for-profit coding clubs. “Dojos” shall mean the not-for profit coding clubs established to support communities and spread the philosophy of CoderDojo.
All Dojos are independent, autonomous, community groups set up to inspire young people to learn code.
All Dojos have different styles of operating but they all hold the same ethos.

Question about : We commit to not charging children attending nor their parents
Charging is not easy to translate in french ! Do you mean : paying each session ?
Our CoderDojo is managed by a non-profit. The children must pay an annual fee to be a member of the non profit to cover all the costs. So we have to “charge” once a year the children or the parents.
Thank you !
Nope, alas “charging” refers to “faire payer” in general. Hence payed membership isn’t either allowed.
