The Intel Computer Clubhouse Network is an after-school community-based technology learning program. Intel Computer Clubhouses enable youth in underserved communities to acquire tools necessary for personal and professional success. The Computer Clubhouse provides a supportive learning environment where youth build skills and self-confidence, as well as a future, working together with adult mentors who provide inspiration and serve as role models.
Intel supports the establishment of Computer Clubhouses in underserved communities around the world. The objectives of the Intel Computer Clubhouse Network are to proliferate the learning model that was created by the Museum of Science, Boston and the MIT Media Lab, establish it as a replicable model for technology learning, and support the success of individual Computer Clubhouses.
