The NPSS Hub

The NPSS Hub at the Johns Hopkins Everyone Graduates Center is a cross-sector connector focused on helping national, state, and local efforts that bring evidence-based student supports where they’re needed most. The Hub ties together school districts, state and local education agencies and collaboratives, federal agencies, philanthropy, and national and community organizations. It supports increasing access to and implementation of student support programs and promotes the identification and strengthening of community-based hubs. It supports programs’ effectiveness by providing technical assistance and conducting research. And, it helps recruit AmeriCorps members and volunteers to the effort. The NPSS Hub:
