Who can join the Uptown Hub?
The Hub accepts youth between the ages of 14 and 24. Once you enroll, you are a Hub member until you turn 25, and you never need to re-enroll. For example, if you enroll when you’re 16, then you move away for a few years, but find yourself back in New York when you’re 20, you can still walk in the Hub and pick up where you left off and don’t need to enroll again.
How do I become a member of the Uptown Hub?
If you’re interested in joining the Hub, you can text the enrollment line at (917) 740-7496 and we can send an enrollment packet to you
When can I meet with my Hub Advocate?
When you send in your completed enrollment packet, your assigned Hub Advocate will reach out to you within a week. After that, your Hub Advocate will check in with you on a schedule you both decide on in your first meeting.
Are you virtual or in-person?
The Hub is currently completely virtual, but is planning to start allowing Hub members back into our newly constructed space soon. Check in with us regularly for updates on that.
Do I have to participate in everything the Hub offers?
No! As a Hub member, you can participate as much as you would like to. We encourage our young people to be a part of our space and feel comfortable. To be considered for certain services, we just ask that you connect with your Hub Advocate first.
