2020 was a year of challenge but also resilience for The Clubhouse Network. In spite of the global COVID-19 pandemic and its devastating impact on Clubhouse communities, we are confident The Network will emerge stronger than before.
Thanks to the leadership of our community-based organizations, Clubhouses around the world rose to the challenge of the COVID crisis – from setting up food pantries and 3D-printing supplies for front-line workers, to opening their doors for extended hours and being there for young people during uncertain and difficult times.
Clubhouses also supported youth through the racial trauma and reckoning taking place around the U.S. and the world, amplifying creative youth expression and encouraging community efforts to bring about systemic change.
In 2020, Best Buy supported the ongoing expansion of the Network to help us reach 110 Clubhouses serving youth in 21 countries. A new $2.0 million grant from the U.S. Department of Justice will strengthen mentoring relationships, including cultivating a culture of trauma-informed care when it is needed more than ever.
We’ve been able to accomplish all these things thanks to the many donors, community partners, Board members, volunteers, families, and staff who sustain our mission. With your ongoing support, The Clubhouse Network will continue to empower young people to create a future that’s strong and bright.
