The Eastmont Computer Clubhouse is an after-school, community-based learning program that enables youth ages 10 – 18 in underserved areas to access cutting-edge technology and become self-confident, creative and motivated learners.
The Clubhouse is filled with innovative tools, imaginative people, and the time to explore. Beyond “learning-by-doing,” it is “learning-by-designing.” Clubhouse members are able to choose among exploration activities, including designing their own dream house, mixing their own digitized music, experimenting with image processing and creating short films and cartoons. As they continue their involvement in the Clubhouse program, participants begin to develop more in-depth projects, either individually or as part of a project group. Over time groups of projects become portfolios which can support college and career ambitions.
Through their participation in the Clubhouse community, members develop skills that help them reach personal, educational and career goals.
