College & Career Center

Building a 21st century workforce right here at The Boys & Girls Clubs of Hartford.

Our goal is that every Club member graduate on time with a plan for their future. The College and Career Center is vital to that vision. Created with funding from The Hartford, the College and Career Center provides guidance in four key areas: Career Exploration and Matching, First-Job Skills Development, Work-Based Learning Experiences and Planning for the Future.

Practical, hands-on experience

Through the Center, Club members have access to hands-on workforce experiences through programs such as corporate partnerships and summer internships. The Center gives Club members opportunities to tour companies, visit colleges, receive assistance with college and employment applications, participate in mock interviews, career fairs and develop the technical and soft skills to compete in the 21st Century workforce.

With additional support from the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving, Club teens have an opportunity to serve as Junior Staff or Counselors-in-Training during the Boys & Girls Clubs Summer Fun Club. For many teens, it is their first job.

Looking toward our future

The Center is committed to providing teens the inspiration and resources needed to succeed in the 21st century.
