One major way is by utilizing The Village, a private members-only social network. Here, youth connect with the global community of Computer Clubhouses in a safe and collaborative way. Because the Village is a private social network, local Clubhouse Coordinators register their youth members and mentors who then use it as a tool to expand their worldview. Clubhouse members upload projects they create to the Village, thus exposing all users to different cultures and talents from around the world. Members collaborate with each other by sharing tutorials, joining interest-driven groups, liking and commenting on each other’s projects, and critiquing each other in constructive ways. By connecting peers with similar interests, the Village builds a youth-led learning community.
Additionally, the Clubhouse Network hosts a biennial week-long Teen Summit. This youth leadership event brings Clubhouse members together from each of the 100 Clubhouses internationally for workshops, projects, and teambuilding activities.
At the Computer Clubhouse young people explore their own ideas, learn from one another, and use technology to express themselves creatively. The Clubhouse environment is not about teaching a curriculum or providing a facility for Internet access. Rather, it is about helping each individual discover his or her own potential.
