The Best Buy Teen Tech Center and Clubhouse at Edgewater are free, after-school programs for youth ages 12-18 with a focus on interest-based learning. At the Clubhouse, we teach technology through exploration, creativity and self-expression. Members can come by after school and stay as long as they’d like to work on creative projects, tinker with technology, hang out with mentors or learn something new.

The Clubhouse Learning Approach is designed to empower youth from all backgrounds to become more capable, creative, and confident learners. This approach is grounded in research from the fields of education, developmental and social psychology, cognitive science and youth development.
Learning By Designing
People learn best when they are actively engaged in designing, creating, and inventing, not just passively receiving information.
Following Your Interests
When people care about what they are working on, they are willing to work longer and harder, and they learn more in the process.
Building A Community
When people collaborate with others of diverse ages, cultures, genders, and backgrounds, they gain new perspectives for understanding the world—and themselves.
Fostering Respect and Trust
In places where everyone’s ideas and opinions are respected, people are more likely to take risks and experiment—and thus more likely to learn and innovate.
THE CLUBHOUSE NETWORK
The Clubhouse Network is a global community comprised of 125 Clubhouses in 19 countries, providing 25,000 youth per year with access to resources, skills, and experiences to help them succeed in their careers, contribute to their communities, and lead outstanding lives.
