Post-Secondary Support Network

The Post-Secondary Support Network is Hartford’s professional network for college access and youth development professionals from various nonprofits serving high school youth, such as Career Beginnings, OPP, Legacy Foundation, Urban League of Greater Hartford, UCAP, YWCA, Boys & Girls Clubs, OPP, Hartford Youth Scholars, Blue Hills Civic Association, Capital Workforce Partners, Center for Latino Progress, Hartford Public Library, etc., as well as college admissions professionals from CCSU, CCC, MCC, Trinity, USJ, UHart, UConn Hartford, Goodwin College, and Bay Path University. The goal among these practitioners is to improve the quality of programming by: 

  • Sharing knowledge and best practices among themselves; 
  • Sharing resources whenever possible; 
  • Having a voice into the priorities of the ALL IN! Coalition Steering Committee and into possible new action teams; and 
  • Collectively addressing challenges common among network members. 

As we ask more investors to expand college access and youth development programming in our city, we ensure we do everything to drive efficiency throughout the work already being done to support high school students who need to make a plan for their post-secondary future. 

Work-Based Learning Network

The Work-Based Learning Network is Hartford’s professional network for workforce development folks from nonprofits serving in-school youth, such as CRT, Blue Hills Civic Association, Center for Latino Progress, Forge City Works, OPP, Ready CT and others. It includes workforce development leaders from the City of Hartford, United Way, Social Venture Partners and a handful of committed employers. The goal among these practitioners and leaders is to improve the quality of programming by:

  • Agreeing on one set of standards to guide work-based learning program quality; 
  • Developing common assessments and curriculum in an online toolkit; 
  • Having a voice into the priorities of the ALL IN! Coalition Steering Committee and into possible new action teams; and 
  • Collectively addressing challenges common amongst network members. 

As we ask more employers to support our youth with internships and other career-readiness opportunities, we created an infrastructure to prepare students to be ready for the work.
