The 9th Hub

The 9th Hub is a voice and influence project made up from a group of young people gathered from the 8 Space* hubs in Devon and young people that represent many other youth clubs and settings in the voluntary sector – to create one ‘virtual’ 9th Hub.

They are young people who are interested in making a change and having an influence on youth work beyond the walls of their own youth centres .

  • Learn new skills

  • Make a difference

  • Get more out of volunteering

  • Give out £100k in REAL funding to youth clubs in Devon

  • Meet other young activists and volunteers

  • Earn nationally recognised awards whilst volunteering

  • Full support from your local Space* community worker and FREE activities with transport
