Since opening our doors 13 years ago, over 6000 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 not only facilitates this approach, they apply these principles daily as they model curiosity, flexibility and perseverance.
This approach establishes the culture of our Clubhouse and Daytime program. Our enrichment space 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.
A program for youth to focus on a specific area of technology, develop their workforce readiness skills and gain work experience.
SUMMER STEAM CAMPS
Explore, create and design this summer at our four STEAM Camps. No experience is required! We supply the tools, you supply the imagination.
OUR GLOBAL COMMUNITY AND NETWORK
We are proud to be a member of The Clubhouse Network and to host two Gold Crown Clubhouse after school programs; Best Buy Teen Tech Center @ Gold Crown Field House and the Gold Crown Clubhouse @ Edgewater. The Clubhouse mission is to provide a creative and safe out-of-school learning environment where young people from under-served communities work with adult mentors to explore their own ideas, develop new skills, and build confidence in themselves through the use of technology.
The Clubhouse Network is an international community of 100 Clubhouses located in 19 countries, providing youth with life-changing opportunities for 25 years. Each Clubhouse aligns with the Clubhouse mission as they work directly with teens in their service area. Clubhouse members have the opportunity to explore creativity in an atmosphere free of standards and testing, where we can focus on process and problem solving rather than product.
Join a unique community of young people and adults who create, invent, and explore together using the latest technology. Clubhouse Mentors vary in age, background, interests, and skills, but all have the common interest in helping teens find their passion.
We operate in two facilities; the Best Buy Teen Tech Center at the Gold Crown Field House and the Clubhouse @ Edgewater. At each facility we run our after-school clubhouse and work with local schools in the community to enrich students learning experience.
Gold crown enrichment helps area youth discover their talents, strengths and hope for the future by providing creative opportunities and supportive staff in a safe and exciting environment
