Goal

ROTARY International is an international service organization, with clubs all over Canada and the rest of the world that engage in altruistic service for their communities. A huge part of our service involves meaningful outreach, reflected in many ongoing and one-off programs, conducted by our membership and a team of dedicated volunteers. ROTARY Club Mississauga Malton recognizes the growing importance of computer coding in school, business, even recreation. Programming and associated 'coding' have become essentials that can open doors for youth in terms of education and career prospects. And we want to dispel the notion that it's harder than you think, or just too hard. Our initiative is all about promoting computer literacy, plus improving the prospects of youth in our local community.We invite applications from those who are in the mainstream with reference to trends in computers literacy, and who want to impart their knowledge to youngsters who are ready to learn and become confident and comfortable in their approach to 'coding' and related topics. The Coding Tutor will enjoy a unique opportunity to be creative in development and implementation of a program that will effectively communicate/teach what arguably are becoming 'life skills' in the 21st century. We need capable volunteers ideally to take on this 'role' in a 'virtual' capacity, for the purpose of introducing children (at the Grade3 to 5  level) to computer/software coding.
