College Supports Network (CSN)

The College Supports Network is Hartford’s professional network for college access professionals from various nonprofits serving high school youth, such as Career Beginnings, OPP, Legacy Foundation, Urban League of Greater Hartford, UConn ConnCAP, YMCA, YWCA, Boys & Girls Clubs, RISE UP, etc., as well as college admissions professionals from CCSU, CCC, MCC, Trinity, USJ, UHart, UConn Hartford, Goodwin College, and Bay Path University. The goal amongst these practitioners is to improve quality of programming by: 

  • Sharing knowledge and best practices amongst 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 amongst network members. 

Before we ask more investors to expand college access programming in our city, we must 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 professionals from various nonprofits serving in-school youth, such as CRT, Blue Hills Civic Association, Center for Latino Progress, Forge City Works, OPP, Ready CT, etc., as well as workforce development leaders from the City of Hartford, United Way, Social Venture Partners, as well as a handful of committed employers. The goal amongst these practitioners and leaders is to improve 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. 

Before we ask more employers to support our youth with internships and other career-readiness opportunities, we must create an infrastructure to drive higher quality of student preparation.
