The Intel Computer Clubhouse Network
Inspiring youth through technology
This program is an after-school, community-based learning program that enables youth in underserved areas to access cutting-edge technology and become self-confident, motivated learners and leaders. The network is based on a learning model created by the Boston Museum of Science in collaboration with MIT Media Labs. Intel joined as the lead sponsor in 2000 and has invested more than $35.0 million in ICCN. The network has over 100 clubhouses in 20 countries, which provide over 25,000 youth access to technology.
At a Computer Clubhouse, young people work with adult mentors to:
- Get experience with high-end professional hardware and software
- Develop technical fluency
- Build their skills and self-confidence
Computer Clubhouses can also inspire gifted students who may find school boring or unchallenging. They’re open, supportive places where young creators can use their after-school time (approximately 40% of each student’s waking hours) constructively.
“I was very impressed by their talents, and soon I discovered I too had a hidden talent—it was Web design!”
—Camille Layugan, Computer Clubhouse alumna, Philippines
