  • Tutoring & Mentoring Programs

    One of the central focuses of ConnectiKids programming is the Tutorial Program. One day each week for 75 minutes, students meet individually with a tutor from one of nine sponsoring organizations. Tutors usually use a portion of this time to help his/her student complete his/her homework and/or complete the lesson plans we provide on a weekly basis.

  • Arts & Enrichment Program

    ConnectiKids Arts and Enrichment Workshop Series, a short series of classes facilitated by local artists, run on a cyclical schedule throughout the school year where children work around a theme in order to reach a goal by the end of each class.

  • Civic Engagement / Character Building

    These programs invite youth to have a deeper understanding of the world and their influence on it so they can make meaningful improvements to their lives and the lives of others. It follows a mentor-based model with age and developmentally-appropriate activities, with active mentoring focused on civic engagement including: current events, global issues, community projects, and field trips.

  • Summer Programs

    The ConnectiKids Summer Program is a four-week, half-day program offered in coordination with the Hartford Public Schools summer school schedule. The ConnectiKids Summer Program is the only program in the city to use a unifying, thematic approach that ties together academic and enrichment activities and provides an inspiring context for learning, recreation and positive socialization.
