PR and Marketing…

Here at the Clubhouse we host a variety of events including Showcases, Exhibitions, Community Events and Fundraisers. Any expertise in the organisation and delivery of these events would be much appreciated!
We are always looking for creative and fun ways to raise funds for project materials and educational field trips. If you would like to help us organise, deliver and promote a fundraiser that would be great!
There is often technical support needed at the Clubhouse for software updates, the network, printers, server, and firewalls. If you have the skills to help keep the place running smoothly your time would be greatly appreciated.
“I’ve been mentoring at the Clubhouse for the past 4 years and I found the atmosphere addictively electric and eclectic! I’ve often dragged myself to the front door after a hard day/week and found myself bouncing and laughing my way back down the road after a session. Not only does it give a great feel good factor, but it’s a brilliant way to get involved and network with a vast amount of different people and organisations.”

“The Clubhouse is a unique environment to volunteer as a mentor. From the time you go in the door on a given day, you can be asked by the members to help them edit a film,burn a cd, help them create a website, paint plates, sew, or reconstruct old toys. What you don’t know how to do, the young members will show you. We all learn from each other. It’s a very special space where eight years olds can show you how to make a website or how to make programmed robots. It helps to bring out talents we never knew we had and that goes for mentors just as must as it does for the young members.”

“I joined the clubhouse as a volunteer mentor in 2007 and plan to have more fun for the next fifteen years or more!! When I first joined the clubhouse I thought I would be teaching the kids about computers. I was happily surprised to find that it was nothing like school and from day one I felt part of a community. I found the clubhouse to be a fun, vibrant, creative environment providing a space for young people and volunteers to share ideas and collaborate on creative projects.
There is never a dull moment at the Clubhouse and every visit is a new experience. We have great fun preparing for the showcases, where the young people can show parents, visitors and friends what they’ve been working on. The atmosphere is structured chaos full of passion, enthusiasm, focus and fun.
The young people and mentors are free to follow their imaginations and create their own projects. My areas of interest are electronics, LEGO robotics and computer programming. The clubhouse is young person centred and they are encouraged to explore and discover what interests them. You’d be amazed at the ideas they come up with! It’s also great to be able to walk through town and be recognised and greeted by young people and residents with a smile and wave.
If you want to make a meaningful and positive impact in the lives of young people and at the same time smile and laugh for a couple of hours until your face hurts join us in the clubhouse!!”

“Being a mentor at the Computer Clubhouse was nothing short of amazing. There is a team of amazing people working to make this place the most warm, friendly, and educational environment for the kids and being apart of that was an unbelievable opportunity. I would recommend it to anyone who is caring and really wants to see kids learn.”
