In partnership with Boston Public Schools, the YMCA of Greater Boston is a lead agent in the Community Hub School strategy. The goals of a Community Hub School are to provide access to quality learning and social opportunities for students through integrated and strategic partnerships, to engage families, and to offer health and community services that allow students to reach their full potential. YMCA Community Hub School work is anti-racist work with the ultimate goal of reimagining the way we approach schooling to create racial equity in the city of Boston.
Utilizing the inherent resources, talents and cultural wealth of the surrounding community and working alongside school leaders, students, families and other community stakeholders, the YMCA operates in several Community Hub Schools throughout Boston, where an on-site YMCA Community Hub School Manager facilitates fundamental support for students which enables them to do what they came to school for in the first place — to learn.
