Programming at The HUB focuses on three areas – Education, Employment and Empowerment. In addition to our “official” programs, The HUB often refers youth to other services in the community to assist with basic needs like housing, food and health care.

Our vision at The HUB is preparing young adults for life and building a stronger community.
The HUB provides programming in local high schools for students that are credit deficient, struggling with truancy or pregnant/parenting (Back on Track). These supports and services are aimed to assist students with staying in school and successfully moving closer to the goal of graduation. The HUB recognizes that traditional school does not work for everyone so we also provide free GED prep classes and remove barriers to accessing GED testing. Additionally the HUB provides support for individuals exploring and transitioning to post-secondary education (LEAP).
The HUB assists participants in developing job skills and connections through a job readiness curriculum (Project HIRE), access to resources for job searching and supports once employment has been secured.
Concrete supports are imperative to navigate the transition to adulthood. The HUB empowers participants to advocate for themselves, assists with learning supports and resources and provides additional caring adults in the lives of participants. Our community is fortunate to have many resources however navigating the available resources can be confusing for anyone especially for those young people that are aging out of the child welfare system and are separated from the supports and services they have come to know.
