Edgies Teen Center Club Tracks

Fall 2017 Teen Center Club Tracks

What is a Club Track? 

  • Club Tracks are specific fields of interest that allow students to deeply and intentionally explore a content area.
  • Club Tracks are led by experienced artists and educators who have demonstrated mastery in their given field. 
  • Each Club Track will focus on developing skills, completing service learning projects, and preparing for performances or events. As a result, our programming is designed to best serve students who can attend program regularly and consistently. 

 Schedule

  • Tracks will operate over the course of 3 Semesters, each semester ending with a culminating project, activity, or event.
    • Fall Semester (October-January)
    • Winter Semester (January-March)
    • Spring Semester (March-June)
