The Hub is a citywide approach to building sustainable, high-quality expanded learning and out-of-school opportunities for high school-aged youth in Providence. It is open to any high school-aged youth, 5 days a week and acts as a gateway to connect young people to the wide array of opportunity providers that exist throughout the city. The Hub provides youth with Internet access, guidance from staff, internship opportunities, and a range of trainings and information sessions.
The Hub also participated in a Rhode Island Public Transit Authority(RIPTA) working group and was responsible for bringing a new cadre of 4 community youth groups to RIPTA that are now working on a Transportation for Education Initiative.
One of those groups was Hub community partner, Youth 4 Change. Y4C made this video to shed light on the role affordable transportation plays in increasing student barriers to attending school.
Check out the Hub on Facebook and Twitter to keep up with all the exciting goings on!
