Intel Computer Clubhouse Network

The Intel Computer Clubhouse Network is an after-school community-based technology learning program that enables youth in underserved communities to acquire tools necessary for personal and professional success.

A Computer Clubhouse is more than just a safe environment for youth; it is also a creative place where a "community of learners" — young people working with adult mentors and staff—use technology as a tool for learning and creative expression. The supportive learning environment within the Computer Clubhouses enables young people to build skills as well as self confidence.

The philosophy of the Intel Computer Clubhouse Network is "beyond access," a place where young people use professional hardware and software to create computer-based projects inspired by their own ideas. The Computer Clubhouse Network operates as a program of the Boston Museum of Science in cooperation with the MIT Media Lab.

There are 72 clubhouse locations around the nation. Is your BDPA chapter co-located with one of them? If so, does your chapter have interest in trying to create a strategic alliance with the Intel Computer Clubhouse leadership?
