Hub and Spoke


Hub and Spoke

Building a sustainable, collaborative, youth-led platform that breaks boundaries

In this intensive — a partnership between Tsai CITY, Yale Schwarzman Center, Urban Studies, and Yale CCAM — students will build on the work of the first cohort (Spring 2021), where participants helped to define and realize Hub and Spoke as a space where the New Haven-Yale community can collaborate, and where ideas of community involvement are discussed and taken to action. The aim is to build a sustainable, collaborative, youth-led platform that dissolves the town-and-gown-divide. 

This cohort will be responsible for completing a community-centered data mapping project and presenting it in a public exhibition. There will be in-person/virtual meetings and visits to New Haven organizations. There is a small budget to use in New Haven.

You should expect involvement in Hub and Spoke for 4 hours per week, including meeting in weekly huddle sessions from October 18 to November 29. Students will gain hands-on experience building Hub and Spoke from the ground up, working in a team, building a portfolio, growing a network, learning communication and design skills, and identifying internship/collaboration opportunities within New Haven.

The application deadline was October 11 and the Fall 2021 application process has ended. This page will be updated with more information  concerning the Spring 2022 application deadline shortly.
