Over the last year, the global CoderDojo community has had to adapt to a host of new circumstances in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Despite many Dojos around the world having to pause their sessions earlier this year, a remarkable number of clubs found new and innovative ways to learn, connect, and have fun. Some Dojos have been running their sessions online, while others have been sending activities for Ninjas to try remotely. Some Dojos have been able to resume in-person sessions in regions where it is safe to do so.
We have designed these certificates to help you reward and recognise the efforts of your Ninjas and volunteers during the pandemic.
If your Ninjas were able to code during this unusual time — regardless of whether this was in a big or small way — you will undoubtedly want to reward them for these efforts. We have designed a special Ninja certificate for this purpose.
Volunteers also deserve huge recognition for any efforts they have made in the past few months. It is likely that they have had to adapt to new ways of mentoring and supporting the Ninjas: they may have organised the tools to host your sessions online, or have helped to put safety measures in place for in-person sessions.
