BEST BUY Teen Tech Center

The Family Service Teen Tech Center, is sponsored by Best Buy and established with the support of The Clubhouse Network to engage and inspire youth through the operations of the Teen Tech Center. Young people (ages 13 to 18) will have the opportunity to create art, music and animations; design science simulations and mobile applications; write and illustrate interactive poetry, stories, and film; build kinetic sculptures and robotic constructions; and design their own 3D worlds and games using state-of-the-art technology and professional software tools.

The Best Buy Teen Tech Center is a part of Best Buy’s commitment to fuel the next generation of innovators. We provide a safe out-of-school time learning environment where youth can explore their ideas, develop new skills, and build confidence in themselves through the use of technology. This creative environment encourages youth to express themselves while developing critical 21st century skills.

This free after-school program runs from Monday through Friday, and teens are invited to drop in from 3:30 PM – 7:30 PM on any of these days.

Family Service Association's Best Buy Teen Tech Center is the only program of its kind in Texas.
