Help us get to the Clubhouse Network Teen Summit in Boston!
We are seeking your help to send two members of the YWCA Canberra Clubhouse to the biennial Clubhouse Network Teen Summit in Boston in July 2020. The Summit is a week-long youth leadership event that brings together youth from the 100 Clubhouses internationally.
With your support, we can send two college students from Tuggeranong, Ella and Emily, who have been Clubhouse members since it opened in 2014. They are both passionate about science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) and want to forge careers in that space.
At Teen Summit, the girls will explore issues relevant to them and propose solutions through the creative use of innovative, high-end technologies. They will:
- work on projects based on needs that they have identified in their community
- share information about our Clubhouse with other participants, such as our award-winning What’s Your Reality project
- attend a college and career fair
- visit local businesses and meet with professionals from organisations relevant to their areas of interest
- participate in a discussion about potential future roles for youth in the Network.
Help us reach our goal and donate before 31 March.
About YWCA Canberra Clubhouse
The YWCA Canberra Clubhouse is a free, out of school learning space that provides over 400 young people, aged 10 – 18 in the Tuggeranong region with access to the latest technology, as well as mentoring and support to grow their skills in science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics, and music. The program exists to deliver better socio-economic outcomes for the Tuggeranong community and better STEAM employment outcomes for women and young people from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and culturally diverse backgrounds. With the essential support from our cross-sector partners, volunteers, Tuggeranong community, and our dedicated staff, our members have access to cutting-edge technology, industry mentors and a supportive environment that fosters their creativity and independent learning almost every week of the year.
At the Clubhouse, members can explore areas such as coding, 3D printing, photography, videography, visual art, green screen effects, music, virtual reality, and more. The Clubhouse also offers a free school holiday program during each school holiday period.
