Key Activities

The Kids for Kids Toronto Coding Club was founded by Vida Waran, the founder and CEO of SC4K, initially catering to SC4K coding class students. The club was established with three primary objectives: fostering Innovation and Invention, promoting Volunteer Work, and encouraging Physical Activities. Over time, the club has evolved into a registered not-for-profit organization, welcoming children aged 4 to 18 years from across Canada as members. Our core belief is that education stands as the key to steering the world towards a positive trajectory.

 

We are dedicated to championing Environmental Sustainability, extending education to underprivileged children, and fostering an atmosphere that respects and embraces differences, emphasizing Cultural Diversity and Inclusiveness. At Kids for Kids Toronto Coding Club, we are committed to shaping the future by empowering young minds through education and fostering a sense of global responsibility.

1. Innovation, Invention, and Creativity:  Our students collaborate in teams to brainstorm and develop innovative ideas. We assess the feasibility of implementing these concepts in real-world scenarios. Moreover, we prepare high school students for events such as the Waterloo University Hackathon and other relevant hackathons. Our innovation projects consistently revolve around addressing climate change and enhancing community well-being. Additionally, we encourage our students to express their creativity by writing books for publication on Amazon KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing).

2. Volunteer Jobs: We foster a sense of community responsibility among our students by encouraging them to participate in volunteer activities. This includes conducting free coding demonstrations for parents to emphasize the importance of early coding education. We also inspire our students to teach coding to underprivileged children and take the initiative to organize inter-school coding competitions. We guide them through the process of hosting these events and involve them in the volunteer roles necessary for successful implementation.

3. Physical Activities:  Recognizing the importance of a balanced lifestyle, particularly in response to the growing concern of excessive screen time, we encourage our students to engage in physical activities. During the summer, our students form teams to participate in activities such as basketball, soccer, swimming, bike riding, running, and yoga. These activities are student-led, and we do not provide coaches or teachers.

One of our significant initiatives is to conduct a coding and robotic competition among, both elementary and high schools, Canada wide. We offer this competition at no cost (With the support of sponsors) for the following reasons:

  • To raise awareness among parents and students about the feasibility of learning to code from as early as 4 years of age.

  • To emphasize the significance of acquiring coding skills at a young age.

  • To provide self-motivated students with a platform to showcase their abilities in front of a large audience.

  • To offer our students a challenging volunteer opportunity, guiding them through the organization and execution of a major event with full support from the SC4K founder, directors, staff, and parents.

  • To foster critical thinking, creativity, problem-solving, teamwork, collaboration, confidence, and leadership skills among students.

  • To motivate students to focus on coding subjects and enhance their "can-do" attitude through awards presented at an awarding ceremony attended by a substantial audience.
