Report on the 2022 Youth Impact Survey of Clubhouses & Teen Tech CentersDownload
In this 2022 youth impact survey report, we share findings, insights, and considerations drawn from a survey of members (ages 13–22) participating in programming at Best Buy Teen Tech Centers (TTCs) and Clubhouses: Where Technology Meets Imagination. All TTCs and Clubhouses are affiliates of The Clubhouse Network (TCN).
Informing Change fielded the survey in January and February 2022. The online version of the survey was available in nine languages, with an option to complete a paper-based survey which was made available in English only. We asked program members about their TTC/Clubhouse experiences, what was most important to them, their growth in STEAM knowledge, technical and core skills, their future interests, and the ways participating in TTCs/Clubhouses contributed to these.
A total of 1,012 members from 17 countries completed the 2022 YIS.
About The Clubhouse Network
Since its beginnings in 1993, The Clubhouse Network has been a resource for thousands of young people to explore their own interests, develop skills, and build confidence through the use of technology. Now located in more than 130 low-income communities in 21 countries around the world, each Clubhouse is at once an inventor’s workshop, design house, sound stage, hackerspace, music studio, and programming lab. At the Clubhouse, youth from underserved communities express their creativity, engage in peer-to-peer learning, and develop skills.
