The Fitzroy Computer Clubhouse provides a creative and safe after-school learning environment where young people from underserved communities work with adult mentors to explore their own ideas, develop skills, and build confidence in themselves through the use of technology.
The Fitzroy Computer Clubhouse is a project of the Fitzroy Learning Network & is the first and currently only one of two Computer Clubhouses in Australia. The Fitzroy Computer Clubhouse is part of a global Computer Clubhouse Network that spans over 100 Computer Clubhouses across the globe. We have 140 members at the Clubhouse from 17 different countries and numerous cultural backgrounds.
The Computer Clubhouse operates 5 nights a week after school. As a member of the Intel Computer Clubhouse Network, members have access to a fantastic IT and design learning model and global networks through the Computer Clubhouse Network intranet. Members also have the opportunity to apply for scholarships and participate in a biennial Teen Summit with members from the world wide clubhouse community in Boston, USA.
Established in 1993 by The Computer Museum (now part of the Museum of Science, Boston) in collaboration with the MIT Media Laboratory, the Computer Clubhouse helps youth acquire the tools necessary for personal and professional success. Find out more about the Clubhouse Vision and Learning Model.
