Our Approach

ConnCAT provides a safe space where middle and high school students can explore their creative talents in the company of supportive peers and instructors. Though the program does not focus on one type of student exclusively, our emphasis is on youth who are not meeting their academic potential in a traditional classroom environment and who would benefit from additional outlets for self-expression.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, all programs are offered at no cost to participants. ConnCAT’s year-round calendar provides multiple opportunities for interested youth.

After-School Program

AFTER-SCHOOL programs include multimedia arts classes that help youth discover and develop new talents and transfer this positive energy to the classroom.
