Connect Us – CT

Children & Families

Connect-Us programs bring together suburban and urban neighbors in partnership to improve the quality of outcomes for young people in Bridgeport living in areas of concentrated poverty. Our youth programs are designed to complement formal education with afterschool growth opportunities that broaden horizons for young people. We provide the city’s emerging adults with opportunities to expand their community and tools to help them navigate our increasingly complex world.

Help Us Launch the Bridgeport Young Leaders Program!

Children & Families

Connect-Us is raising $6,000 to fund the launch of the Bridgeport Young Leaders Summer Fellowship Program! Our goal is to host 5 youth leaders from the Bridgeport community for a 6-week, paid fellowship with Connect-Us to help lead our outreach and organizing efforts, and train directly with our executive director in community development and grassroots activism in order to introduce to and engage 500 people in our free community programs!
