Community Learning Hubs are safe spaces for children to go during the school day for supervised distance learning with high-speed internet access, social support, and enrichment, in a small cohort of no more than ten children. Children eligible to attend a Hub must be New Haven residents in 1st through 9th grades, registered for the New Haven Public Schools, and demonstrate high need. Space is extremely limited and families with the greatest need will receive priority. There is no cost to families.
There is a common application at nhvlearninghubs.net for all Hubs participating in the New Haven Learning Hubs Collective, which is comprised of the City of New Haven Youth & Recreation Department, non-profit organizations, the New Haven Free Public Library, faith groups, families, educators, and community members. While we are now accepting applications for five initial Hubs, we anticipate at least ten more Hubs, operated by different community partners, to open later this Fall.
To apply for a space at one of the five Hubs operated by the City of New Haven Youth & Recreation Department, please complete the application between **September 28 and 30**. If you prefer a hard copy application, please visit the City of New Haven Youth and Recreation Department at 720 Edgewood Avenue.
Hubs locations are:
-Barnard Nature Center
Families will be prioritized by need, with a lottery among the highest-needs families if necessary. Efforts are also underway to open Hubs in Dixwell, Dwight, Fair Haven, Fair Haven Heights, the Hill, Newhallville, and West Rock.
