Best Buy Teen Tech Center Membership Application
Dear Parent or Guardian:
The Best Buy Teen Tech Center at the New Orleans Public Library is designed to be a safe and fun place for young people ages 13 to 18 from all different kinds of backgrounds. This permission slip includes a description of the program and what personal information young people provide to participate.
Description of the Program: The Best Buy Teen Tech Center at the New Orleans Public Library provides a creative and safe after-school learning modeled after The Clubhouse Network’s learning model and informed by their involvement with the MIT Media Lab. This learning model enables young people to work with adult mentors to explore their own interests, develop skills, and build confidence in themselves through the use of technology. In the Best Buy Teen Tech Center, young people can design their own music, art, videos, animations, robots, and science simulations. Under the supervision of the Best Buy Teen Tech Center Coordinator, they have access to the Internet and can occasionally post their own original work on the Internet.
How We Use the Information: The Best Buy Teen Tech Center at the New Orleans Public Library uses the information collected to create a list of participants in the program and how often they participate and to allow participants to share the materials they create. The Best Buy Teen Tech Center will not transfer or sell this information to any third party and will provide reasonable security for this information and will allow you the opportunity to review this information by contacting staff.
