A YEAR OF GRATITUDE

The Clubhouse Network's 2021 Annual Report

2021 At A Glance

Dear Friends,

As I prepare to step down as Executive Director, it’s an honor to reflect on the many successes and joys I’ve witnessed in my 27-year tenure. Of those, 2021 had its fair share. Thanks to the strength and resilience of the staff, youth, and families at community-based Clubhouses around the world, the Network is stronger than ever. In 2021 we expanded to 120 Clubhouses and Teen Tech Centers serving youth in 21 countries, and embarked on a new 5-year strategic plan focused on growth and innovation; building the Clubhouse Continuum (an intentional approach to a young person’s Clubhouse journey); and strengthening our focus on racial justice and equal opportunity.

It has been a privilege to serve The Clubhouse Network. I’m grateful for the community’s trust in my leadership and dedication to providing young people with the opportunity to explore their ideas, develop skills, and build confidence in themselves through the use of technology.

THE CLUBHOUSE MISSION

The Clubhouse mission is to provide a creative and safe out-of-school learning environment where young people from underserved communities work with adult mentors to explore their own ideas, develop new skills, and build confidence in themselves through the use of technology. In support of that mission, The Clubhouse Network supports community-based Clubhouses around the world by providing start-up support, professional development, new technology innovations, evaluation and assessment, partnership opportunities, and access to an online community for youth, mentors, and staff.
