Club Tech is an ambitious, multi-year initiative that provides all Boys & Girls Clubs with state-of-the-art software; a comprehensive array of programs to help Club professionals build members’ computer skills and integrate technology in all Core Program Areas; and extensive, ongoing training for Club professionals. Club Tech helps Clubs incorporate technology in every aspect of their operations. Most importantly, young people develop the technology skills necessary to succeed in school and the job market.
Power Hour: Making Minutes Count provides Club professionals with the strategies, activities, resources and information to create an engaging homework help and tutoring program that encourages Club members at every age to become self-directed learners.
Members work in groups to create clay characters and storyboards, then they film and edit their own movies. Clay Tech exposes Club members to the art and science involved in creating animation and introduces them to a variety of career options of which they may be unaware.
The program runs as a Lego workshop where youth learn how to create Lego robots. Each child is given the opportunity to work on a real robot and teams are formed. It is a great way for the kids to learn about robotics while also having fun with friends. Leadership and teamwork are the focus, while an early interest in the field of science and robotics can help prepare them for their educational goals. Many former Club Tech LEGO Robotics members have gone on to compete in state and national competitions. These friendly competitions often lead to great scholarship, college, and internship opportunities.
Thank you for supporting our mission: To inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.
