Now… how do we actually pull this off?

Luckily, Prenda is going to do a lot of the heavy lifting. We’re going to do all the training, coaching, and do our best to make sure you have a system full of thriving code clubs. That said, over the years we’ve learned there is a very important role for you, the manager over many libraries, to play in this equation. 

This document will spark ideas and inspiration that will go a long way to ensuring code club’s success in your system. 

Enjoy!
