Seattle Parks opens seven learning hubs for Seattle students

Updated March 5, 2021

Friday, March 12, 2021, will be the last day of operations for the Miller Teen Hub, due to evolving program priorities, challenges in meeting growing staffing needs, and the adjacency of an existing Teen Hub program at Garfield Teen Life Center. The other hubs will remain open through the current school year; feel free to contact them or Miller for assistance with registration.

Looking for a safe, welcoming space for your young person to work on daily virtual learning? Seattle Parks and Recreation has learning hubs for middle or high school students at seven locations across the city. Free, with wifi, these spaces are equipped with community center and youth program staff who can help your student get engaged in learning.

To help support local students during the pandemic, Seattle Parks and Recreation has opened these hubs for the 2020-21 school year. The facilities offer a stable, productive environment by providing access to Seattle Public School’s virtual learning portals, along with recreational, enrichment and mentoring programs and in-person assistance with connectivity and academics. Breakfast and lunch are provided daily.

The hubs adhere to current public health standards by performing regular cleaning, sanitizing and daily wellness/temperature checks. All staff and students are required to wear masks, and social distancing and room occupancy limits are followed. 

Wi-fi is available; participants must bring a laptop or tablet. Bringing a refillable water bottle is also suggested.

The hub sites are open Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 5 pm, and run until June 18, 2021. For more information, please contact one of the sites below (interpretation services available).
