The Uptown Hub Headquarters (HQ) is the physical and figurative heart of the Uptown Hub. HQ’s primary mission is to offer members a safe and engaging space where they can participate in meaningful programs, receive one-on-one support from qualified staff, do homework, meet new people and, of course, have fun!
HQ offers the following types of programming:
- One-on-One Support – Every young person who joins the Hub is connected to a Hub Advocate who will meet with them to assess their needs and interests. The Hub Advocate will continue to meet with the Hub member on a regular basis to provide ongoing support and connect them to services either within the Hub or at a community partner.
- General Drop In – Soon, our Hub space will be open for members to come in Monday through Friday from 3:00pm-7:00pm to relax, snack, work on homework, work on other projects or meet with program staff.
- Hub Clubs and Workshops/Activities – HQ facilitates various clubs and workshops in our space with a focus on youth development, health & wellness, employment readiness, and arts & recreation. There are anime clubs, movie nights, reproductive health workshops, coping skills groups, and interview practicing, just to name a few. Programs generally run between 5 and 6pm Monday through Friday.
- Behavioral Health – The Hub employs three psychologists that can offer individual therapy. You must be a Hub member to have therapy sessions. Let your Hub advocate know that you are interested in behavioral health and they will help you with that process.
