ConnectiKids, Inc., is a non-profit community organization founded by city & suburban volunteers committed to improving the lives of children living in Hartford’s Asylum Hill neighborhood & citywide. ConnectiKids connect Hartford’s Youth to their potential by educating & empowering them through tutoring, mentoring & enrichment. ConnectiKids began in 1978 when volunteers from the Asylum Hill Congregational Church & corporations located on “The Hill” got together to provide occasional after-school tutoring sessions for West Middle Elementary School school students. The organization is currently in its 33rd year of service and works with over 300 children from West Middle & MD Fox Elementary Schools through year round & summer programming. ConnectiKids offers Tutoring/Mentoring, Arts/Enrichment & a Summer Program to elementary school children from West Middle & M.D. Fox Elementary Schools, with opportunities for Alumni students to stay engaged, gain volunteer & civic experiences.
