"I loved getting to work on community service projects with different people each day. People think teenagers aren't motivated to change the community, but look at us - look what we have accomplished!" ~ Sonya, Hartford
“Heads Up! Hartford really changed my life. I am friends with people I never would have met." ~ Alex, Glastonbury
As a part of Heads Up! Hartford, campers spend time with individuals who have had a variety of experiences and come from differing backgrounds. We believe that promoting diversity helps us all to grow, learn, and become better contributors to our society.
Studies show that to create positive, sustainable change in our complex world, we need collaborative leaders who value diversity, inclusion, and teamwork. Developing leadership skills at Heads Up! Hartford happens naturally through the program. Campers are given the opportunity to reach their full potential and over time take leadership roles in planning for and running the camp.
Giving back to the communities in and around Hartford, Connecticut is an essential mission of Heads Up! Hartford. We believe that encouraging community service at a young age fosters ongoing community engagement as an adult and enables thriving communities.
