Dallas Park and Recreation Department's Best Buy Teen Tech Center is an innovative, creative, out-of-school learning space where young people, ages 12 - 17, can work with adult mentors to develop new skills, explore their own ideas, and build confidence in themselves through the use of technology.
Our Teen Tech Center is a proud member of the Clubhouse Network and is located at Juanita J. Craft Recreation Center in Southeast Dallas. This space dedicated to teens where we encourage youth to drop by to engage with mentors, embark on new projects, and learn in a safe, friendly and open environment.

As a member of The Clubhouse Network, we realize that young people learn best when they can work on projects that they are passionate about and actively engage in designing, creating, and inventing – not just passively receiving information.
Our learning approach is designed to empower youth from all backgrounds to become more capable, creative, and confident learners. Members can drive their own projects according to their interests and ideas, while our staff and mentors provide support and assistance.
