Donate to the Clubhouse
Lismore has the only Clubhouse in Regional Australia and it plays a vital role in keeping young people, many of whom experience high rates of economic disadvantage, engaged in school and connected to community.
Every school day, the Clubhouse provides a free, out of school tech-space – a safe place for kids to explore new technology, creative arts and STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) subjects, which provides them with skills for today, and for the future.
$30 helps us to recruit and train youth mentors to work with our Clubhouse members
$60 supports two of our members to attend the biennial Teen Summit in Boston USA in August, to share and learn; problem solve; and to become our world leaders of tomorrow.
$100 can provide new technology for our Clubhouse including robotics and electronics kits and art supplies for almost 200 young people who use our Clubhouse each day.
$250 will subsidise the cost of our holiday workshops to enable financially-disadvantaged young people to attend
