  • 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, full-day program offered in coordination with the Hartford Public Schools summer school schedule and is open to all Hartford students. 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.
