The Hub

What is the Hub?

Hub gives high school students at Juanita Sanchez and 360 High School access to programming provided by a variety of Providence organizations, teachers, and community-based educators.  Students can dive into existing interests or explore new ones.  Each program is offered outside of the school day, offered in a multi-week session, and gives students time for deep learning and the opportunity to build lasting relationships with the adults who guide them in their learning.

Hub programming is offered throughout the year – fall, winter, spring and summer.  Transportation, snacks and meals are all included.  Some programs take place at school, others travel to off-site locations.

Programs vary each session and cover a variety of interests and topics such as rock-climbing, writing, culinary skills, morning fitness, youth leadership, work-readiness programs and so much more.  There is something for everyone at Hub!

What is a typical day in Hub?

Similar to the middle school AfterZone, youth participation in Hub begins right after the last bell of the school day.  Once youth have collected their belongings, they head to the cafeteria for a meal and healthy snack.  The first half hour of Hub time is reserved as a chance for youth to relax and have something to eat before heading to their program.

Hub programs are provided by community organizations and/or school staff and they happen both at the JSEC complex and around the city.  This means that youth can choose a program that takes place in side their school, or a program that happens in a different part of Providence.  Transportation is included for any off-site programs.

Once youth arrive at their program, they now have the opportunity to participate in hands-on programs that provide them with real-world experience, career skills and an afternoon of fun.  Hub has programs in science, technology, engineering, arts, design, theater, leadership, sports, health, culinary arts and so much more!  Programs typically run on Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday.
