Virtual After School Clubs


Come find your community. Meet new friends your age, who share your passions. Log on to one of our after school clubs from anywhere. Led by our peer mentors, instead of a teacher, curious kids will dive in to topics they love. Join one of Teen Innovator’s clubs:

  • Let’s Game Together – play the video games you love on Wednesdays at 4:30PM CDT or Thursdays at 5:30PM CDT
  • Let’s Explore – virtually visit a new city every week on Thursdays at 4:30PM CDT
  • Let’s Care for Animals – learn to care for animals of all shapes and sizes (…and meet some!) on Wednesdays at 5:30PM CDT
