Mission Statement

Digital Clubhouse Network "using the power of digital technology to build a better 21st century community"

Description

History San José and the Digital Clubhouse Network Now Accepting Applications for the 2005-2006 Digitally Abled Producers Program (DAPP). History San José is seeking high school students who want to produce mini-DVD documentaries of people who made a difference in their community by becoming volunteers with our new affiliate, the Digital Clubhouse Network. These volunteers, known as DAPPers, will be participating in a national Service Learning initiative with the History Channel. DAPPers develop 21st century success skills by working on intergenerational digital storytelling projects that preserve community heritage, teaching after school programs dealing with important public health issues, such as tobacco use and childhood obesity, and learning how to manage the day-to-day operations of their Digital Clubhouse. Approximately 20-25 new entrants are admitted to the program every three months, and are given opportunities to steadily upgrade their skills over a 12-month period, progressively receiving additional training and career development opportunities. DAPPers meet for training and teambuilding on Saturdays, and volunteer an average of 2 hours during the rest of the week at their school, at home, or in their community, applying their skills to serve others, including seniors, people with disabilities, low income families, and under privileged youth from a diversity of cultural and ethnic backgrounds. The program is open to youth between the ages of 13 and 18, with preference given to freshmen and sophomores who reside in the City of San José. A limited number of students are accepted from outlying cities. We also welcome ADULT VOLUNTEERS who would like to participate in DAPP by contributing their experience and expertise to the program and/or gaining new skills working with youth. Interested students should submit their applications no later than September 23, in order to be considered for the Fall DAPP session that begins on October 1. Applications for high school and adult volunteers, and additional information can be found at www.digiclub.org/sv or by calling Anita Long MackFarland, Executive Director 408-481-0880.
