BRADFORD, Vt. — The Hub, Bradford’s teen center, has received a $22,000 grant from the Jack and Dorothy Byrne Foundation.

The teen center, located at 9 Barton St. in downtown Bradford, was founded in 2018. It serves Bradford-area students in grades 7 through 12 and is open every day after school, and on Saturdays.

“We are grateful for the Byrne Foundation’s ongoing support, starting in 2020 when the Foundation’s gift helped us open this teen drop-in center,” The Hub’s executive director, Emily Cummings, said in a news release. “Since that time, thanks in part to this support, our capacity has increased, so that, over the past year, attendance at The Hub has more than tripled.”
