Over the summer of 2015, the Telehub went through extensive strategic planning sessions to revaluate it's direction. Members expressed concerns with creation of the "Digital Age" caste system. Individuals, alignment to creator, maintainers, and consumer castes. Fear is our community is being relegated to consumer caste.

Strategic plans lead to an update of the Telehub's vision and mission to one that aligned with perceived need to exposed the community with skill building opportunities.

In Leon Dixon's, "World of Our Dreams"., memoir, "Harrison's Hypothesis" was termed due to observation, the Telehub blessings were bestowed when times of needs occur. Over the 2015 Christmas holiday's, Aaron Deacon, Managing Director of KC Digital Drive reached out to the W.E.B. DuBois Learning Center (DLC), Telehub to provide technical support to deliver on a grant that had been provided to the Urban Neighborhood Initiative (UNI), Connecting Neighbors project. This had a rejuvenating effect on the Telehub; languishing without funds to acquire technology. Stay tune to this site as this group of like minded individuals attempts to make a difference in our community.
