Helping Youth Find Success. The Clubhouse Network 2019 Youth Impact Survey

At more than 100 Clubhouses in 19 countries youth are gaining access to resources, skills, and experiences to help them succeed in their careers, contribute to their communities, and lead outstanding lives.

The Clubhouse is a safe out-of-school learning environment where young people find supportive relationships with trusted adults, positive interactions with peers, and a sense of community and belonging. While engaging in STEM projects and the arts, Clubhouse youth learn problem-solving skills, persistence, and how to collaborate with others. As a result, Clubhouse youth are more committed to their education and more optimistic about their future.

The Clubhouse provides a safe, creative learning environment for thousands of youth in underserved communities around the world.

Because most youth spend more than 2 hours per visit and attend The Clubhouse for an average of 5 years, they develop a deep sense of belonging that inspires them to mentor other youth and to give back to their local community.
