Hub and Spoke

Intensive: 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.

New Application Deadline: October 11. Dates of sessions will be chosen by selected cohort.
