Scott High School Community Hub

The Scott High School Community Hub serves as an anchor for the community and neighborhood. It is characterized by extend hours, service and relationships. The key to this strategy is providing support for children, while bringing services directly to the neighborhood helping knit the community together. A neighborhood of people having their needs met while building community with each other is a neighborhood that ultimately takes care of one another.

The strength of the Hub comes from the community that it serves, taking on the true essences of community helping community. The Hub enlists several programs and host several events to ensure that we are building a safe and health community where everyone has the opportunity for growth and success.

This past school year the Hub launched a school based health clinic, where area youth could receive a wide range of services such as wellness checks, physicals, and immunizations. Our meal program was able to provide over 4,000 meals to the area youth afterschool. The Hub’s youth development programs had students participating in service learning projects, college tours, career fairs, job shadowing opportunities to name a few. With the Hub’s student centered approach we were able to graduate a phenomenal class that received over $1 million dollars in scholarships.

The Hub also hosted several community events. From health fairs, Trunk-or-Treat, Seed Swap, as well as providing families in need with a holiday baskets. This has brought hundreds of people to the school and community. These events help shape the Hub as a safe, connected and engaged community.

If you would like to get involved the Hub is always looking for mentors, volunteers for events and projects, and donations (monetary, school supplies, etc.). All interested parties please feel free to contact the Community Hub Director Joe Peterson This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 419-671-400. With your help and support along with countless others we together can continue to make the Scott Community Hub community strong!
