The former West Middle School Committee now ConnectiKids has been educating, enriching and empowering Hartford’s youth since 1978. However, like many grassroots initiatives, ConnectiKids grew from humble beginnings. We were initially founded as a summer program for third graders in 1978, followed by a homework help club to show urban students a better life’s path and dream for the future.
Thanks to the vision, dedication and efforts of the original 15 Asylum Hill Congregational Church members and leadership that followed, we have now grown to serve hundreds of Hartford’s children annually.
Our mission is “Inspiring Hartford’s children to make positive choices, embrace high expectations and fulfill their potential by providing successful mentors, individualized tutoring, enriching activities and stimulating environments.”
