Youth Programs at The Hub
The Hub is an amazing magical place. It is not just a place for you to study and hang out, its a place that teaches you self determination and how to respect yourself, others, and places you go.
The Hub is the highlight of my day because I feel comfortable and happy here. I feel like I'm at home when I walk through the doors.
While The Hub is a space for the entire community to enjoy, many of our programs are specifically designed for youth in the middle and high school age-range. To be eligible for these programs, all that's required is to fill out and submit a membership application, found here.
This is our current slate of daily programming for the 2019-2020 school year. If interested in any of these programs, please contact us at The Hub, or apply for membership and we will contact you!
The Hub is also a great place to go if you need space to study, and we have a number of staff, volunteers, and even peers willing to lend a hand if you want homework help. If you are having particular struggles with a specific subject, please call us and we will try and arrange for you to meet weekly with a volunteer tutor from the community.
STEM Lab - On Mondays, we try not to explode as we explore our world through Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics! Come be a part of this cool club and build rockets, play with 3D printers, design robots, learn to code, and much, much, more. Mondays from 4pm-6pm
Song School - The Hub is alive on Tuesdays with the sound of music! Song School is your weekly chance to work collectively, individually, or as a group on writing, creating, and performing your own music. No experience necessary, all talent levels encouraged, and we have a host of instruments for you to play! Tuesdays from 4pm-6pm
Business 101 - On Wednesdays, we work! Business 101 is a hands-on exploration of what it takes to run your own business, from developing a business plan to identifying target audiences to creating strong marketing practices, all through the lens of The Hub's own two youth entrepreneurships - Tech Express and The Hub Cafe. Wednesdays from 4pm-4:45pm
College Club - Wondering what exactly a FAFSA is, or need help preparing for the SATs or ACTs? Maybe you’re having a hard time deciding between a big state university or a tiny liberal arts college miles away? Whether you’re an 8th grader who’s just testing the collegiate waters or a senior who’s about to set sail, we will work with you to help create the future you want, while passing on every tip, trick, and trap we know! Wednesdays from 5:15pm-6pm
Peer Recovery Group - Thursdays are for thinking about ourselves, our families, and our friends who have been (or currently are) affected by addiction. JOIN US for safe, open discussion, and group building activities like cooking challenges, art-making, poetry projects, and MORE!!! Thursdays from 4pm-6pm
Free Form Fridays - Fridays are fun days at The Hub. Whether we are playing board games, singing karaoke, or flinging frisbees in the field, we know after a long week it's time to relax! Fridays from 4pm-7pm; open until 9pm on First Fridays
