THANK YOU TO OUR MENTORS
For Mentor Appreciation Month, we highlighted a few of our mentors who have gone above and beyond in the Clubhouse.
A PLACE THAT FELT LIKE HOME
The Clubhouse changed Laura Casavantes life in more ways than one. She was kind enough to share her experiences with a personal essay.
Since opening our doors in 2003, over 15,000 youth have passed through them, drawn to a safe and supportive environment that allows them to express themselves creatively. The goal of our Enrichment Program is to provide a creative, accepting environment that encourages our members to imagine creatively, reason systematically and work collaboratively in order to learn continuously! As life-long learners, our staff facilitate this approach and apply these principles daily as they model curiosity, flexibility and perseverance.
The Clubhouse research based learning model is designed to empower youth from all backgrounds to become more capable, creative and confident learners. This approach leverages new technologies to support new types of learning experiences and engage young people who have been alienated by traditional educational approaches, which establishes the culture of our Clubhouse and Catalyst programming. Our Clubhouse is at once an artist studio, inventor’s workshop, design house, hackerspace, music studio, and computer game development lab. With the encouraging support of staff members and volunteer mentors, youth unleash their talents, engage in peer-to-peer learning, and develop a unique voice of their own. In the process they become inspired about learning and about their own futures.
Come explore, create and discover new interests at our after-school Clubhouse.
There are two locations to choose from.
CLUBHOUSE 2 COLLEGE/CAREER
Developed for youth to focus on a specific area of technology, develop workforce readiness skills and gain real-world work experience.
SUMMER STEAM CAMPS
Discover new interests this summer through the creative use of art and technology at one of our eight camps.
