ABOUT THE SATURDAY CLUB

The Dubai Saturday Clubs is a fun, informal educational programme for 12-15-year-olds from across Dubai’s schools. The aim of the club is to introduce them to future careers, enhance 21st century skills and develop a passion and purpose. Saturday Club workshops are hosted in partnership with local universities, social entrepreneurs and professionals who are passionate about presenting career choices to students and helping them make a better and happier world.

Our inspiration for starting the Dubai Saturday Clubs was the UK’s National Art & Design Saturday Club. Since its establishment in 2016, Dubai Saturday Clubs, together with its numerous community partners have delivered workshops to hundreds of school students.

The Dubai Saturday Club is free to attend and online whenever the situation requires it. Moreover, you will not be assessed!

So, what are you waiting for? Join us now.

How to join a Saturday Club

Each session will be delivered by experts, mentors (and their teams) in the fields of Creativity, Design, Entrepreneurship, Innovation, Photography, Self-development, Sustainable Design and Wellbeing. Due to the nature of the workshops, some partners spread the learning over 2-3 Saturdays while others are just single workshops. So, we recommend that students choose their workshops based on interest, continuity, timing and location.

Check this season’s schedule and register via the Ludopay App (Available on Apple Store and Google Play).

If you are a returning attendee and face technical issues with the installed app, please re-install the app on your device. Once you’ve registered you will be notified if you’ve been successful as spaces are limited. We look forward to seeing you!


How to start a Saturday Club

Social entrepreneurs, not-for-profit organisations, businesses, and universities can all host a workshop with the Dubai Saturday Club. We provide the framework for the workshop, promote the session, recruit the students, and share feedback.

Past and current partners credit the Dubai Saturday Club with helping them forge better relationships with their local communities, and with being an effective means of meeting widening participation objectives.
