Best Buy Teen Tech Centers are a place where teens can develop critical skills through hands-on activities that explore their interests in programming, filmmaking, music production and design. Each location works to bridge the digital divide by giving youth access to tech education opportunities, relationships that help to build confidence, and a foundation for school and career success. A partnership with The Clubhouse Network connects members to a global community of over 130 clubhouses in 20 countries.
The Best Buy Teen Tech Center at Mary Ryan Boys & Girls Club offers Club members access to state-of-the-art technology so they can explore creative projects, including:
• A suite of high-powered computers
• The Adobe Creative Suite of programs
• Camera and filming equipment
• A green screen wall for videos
• A recording booth and audio mixing equipment
• A t-shirt press
The Best Buy Teen Tech Center is offered year-round Monday through Friday at the Mary Ryan Boys & Girls Club (3000 N. Sherman Blvd), located in Sherman Park.
Hours of Operation:
School Year — 2:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Summer — 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
By providing our teens access to this technology, our partners Best Buy & The Clubhouse Network set them up for success, with new studies showing nearly all U.S. jobs now require digital skills.
