Help us come back safe and strong!!

Thank you to everyone that has chosen to support Jubilee Center in today’s #HudsonGives campaign!  There’s still time to donate.

We hope you can show your support to the Jubilee Center as we adapt and work to open for the summer. The Jubilee Center is a resource for our working parents and as we see businesses opening in the coming weeks, many parents are reaching out to us for a safe place to send their children in the summer months. 

Your support can help us provide that.  Visit our #HudsonGives page today and follow us on IG to see updates about our summer program.

We are live! 

We are excited to announce the launch of Jubilee@Home!

Jubilee@Home is our free after school online platform. Our goal is to help our Jubilee students adjust to online learning and being separated from their friends and support systems by providing direct academic assistance & coaching from our staff while making sure they get time to socialize with their friends.

Monday through Wednesday, we log on with our students, review their at-home work, and have a chat about their day. Students who attend at least 2 weekly sessions are invited to our Fun Friday group party, where we host online games and other activities. Students can even win raffle prizes on Fridays!

We are so grateful to get back to doing the work we love to do and to see our Jubilee families’ smiling faces. 

For more information about Jubilee@Home, please email info@jubileecenterhoboken.org


Dear Jubilee Families, 

We first and foremost hope you are all safe and well. The Jubilee Center remains closed in accordance with the state’s efforts to “flatten the curve” by closing all non-essential services. It is with this in mind that we will be postponing our Summer Edu-Venture Open House Webinar and delaying summer registration in general. 

Once we know more about when we are able to reopen, we will likely need to make some changes to the summer program. When we know what that looks like, our families will be the first to know. 

We will be sure to keep you updated through our Facebook, Instagram, and Remind App for families who are currently enrolled in our after school program. 

We are all in this together and we hope to see you all soon.

Veronica Manning

Executive Director, The Jubilee Center


Jubilee Center COVID-19 Relief Fund

As you can imagine, the Jubilee Center has been closely monitoring the developments regarding COVID-19. In alignment with Hoboken Public Schools, the State of New Jersey and the City of Hoboken, the Jubilee Center will be closed from March 16th – March 27th, at a minimum. This closure will likely extend further as testing increases and more cases are discovered in New Jersey.

As a result, this closure, and the accompanying loss of income, is particularly devastating for  our dedicated staff whom Jubilee families entrust with the health and safety of their children every day.  

We are asking you to give anything you can to the Jubilee Center during this difficult time.

Donate now on our Give Lively Page

While a one-time gift is fantastic, a monthly commitment would be even more sustaining to our organization. Your donation will enable us to continue to pay our staff during this crisis, and ensure that we can return to providing high-quality, out-of-school time academic enrichment when the Jubilee Center re-opens.


ANNOUNCEMENT

As the City of Hoboken and Hoboken School District work to reduce the spread of COVID-19 by closing public meetings and schools, the Jubilee Center will also suspend its after school program.

Over the next few days, we will be in touch with the Mayor’s office and the Housing Authority to see if there are ways we can be of help to the community during this difficult time.

In the meantime, I invite the community to email us at info@jubileecenterhoboken.org if you know of anyone that has needs that aren’t being met while the schools are closed, or if you want to offer your help in some way. As ongoing circumstances are unpredictable, we want to be a part of keeping the community safe. We can all get through this together if we look out for each other.

And lastly, our Summer Open House scheduled for Thursday March 26 will now be a video event. We will send more information and a link to register for the summer before that date.

Thank you and be safe!
