History

ConnectiKids, Inc., is a non-profit community organization founded by city and suburban volunteers committed to improving the lives of children living in Hartford’s Asylum Hill neighborhood and citywide. ConnectiKids began in 1978 when volunteers from the Asylum Hill Congregational Church initially got together to provide a positive summer experience for third grade students at West Middle School a public elementary school in the neighborhood. Upon completing their first summer, the volunteers quickly realized there was a greater need for assistance; with help from corporations located on “The Hill” they decided to have occasional after-school tutoring sessions for those students. ConnectiKids is currently in its 39th year of service and works with over 300 children from West Middle Community and Michael D. Fox Elementary Schools through both year round and summer programming.
