Summary

Safe spaces heal. They inspire, provide respite and joy while manifesting community spirit. The Hub is the only safe community space in Bequia for youth and creatives. We have a deep and abiding passion to inspire, fight cultural amnesia, and diminish the mindsets of scarcity that have kept our people in generational poverty. The poverty we are attacking with our intentionality goes beyond the material. We want to recover the essence of our people through the offering of sanctuary.

Challenge

Our country has compounded social issues around extreme generational poverty, teenage pregnancy, violence and unemployment. A sense of dread is felt as family structures have deteriorated due to civic failures and hardship. The youth of Bequia are underserved without access to community spaces. Many feel lost yet unable to connect with outmoded education systems. There are no social workers or therapists, and no support programs exist to increase quality of life, confidence and mental wellbeing.

Solution

Our work is love and care in action. We create deliberate interventions to support our communities in increasing skill and resiliency, connecting them to their power, consciousness and confidence. Our programs offer tools for vulnerable youth to sustain not only their creativity, but their holistic development and future livelihoods. The Hub cultivates an environment of transformation, solidarity and kinship, a safe space where respect, positive thinking and collaboration is core.

Long-Term Impact

Each day we see youth emerge from their cocoons, growing and trusting themselves more. We see them claim their confidence and culture, being unafraid to step into their full potential. At The Hub, youth explore pathways to freedom, expressions and possibilities. Their voices, movements, curiosity and dreams expand without limit. Youth become their brother and sisters' keeper; awakening their essence, identity and super powers. This seismic shift has the potential to transform Bequia's future.
