ABOUT THE SATURDAY CLUB

The Dubai Saturday Club is a fun and informal educational programme for teenagers from across Dubai’s schools. The aim of the club is to introduce them to future careers, enhance their 21st century skills and develop a passion and purpose. Workshops are hosted by social entrepreneurs, professionals and university professors who are passionate about showing students how they can help to make the world better and happier.

Our inspiration for starting the Dubai Saturday Club was the UK’s National Art & Design Saturday Club. Thanks to our partnership with the Design & Fashion Council, Dubai Design District (d3), Dubai Creativity Clusters Authority and Dubai Culture, students have the opportunity to harness their passion for design, as well as channel their creative, collaborative and communicative skills – the key components we all need to live a happy, healthy and productive life.

Since it was established in 2016, the Dubai Saturday Club has completed 3 seasons and has seen 160 students attend the club. Season 4 aims to reach more students and build on the popular workshops from previous seasons.

For this season, we’re inviting young adults aged 12-15 from Dubai schools to take part in the #DubaiSaturdayClub with sessions held from November 2018 to March 2019. Each session will be delivered by community mentors working in creativity and design; entrepreneurship; technology and wellbeing and, working side-by-side with their teams and mentors.
