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 developing deliverables that articulate the vision of Hub and Spoke, completing research for a community-centered project, and presenting Hub and Spoke to stakeholders through an exhibition. There will be in-person meetings and visits to New Haven organizations. Participants will have mentorship and advising from leaders in the departments involved and New Haven community partners. 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 18th to November 29th. 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. Participants will have mentorship and advising from leaders in the departments involved and New Haven community partners.
Application Deadline: October 4th. Dates of sessions will be chosen by selected cohort
