As the needs of the community changed, our focus and programs evolved. Today, we are called upon by Hartford Public Schools, Hartford Police, social service organizations, and other community-based organizations to help high-risk young people attain the skills they need to succeed.
However, our success has more to do with why and how we work than just about what we do.
We help youth become positive community members and succeed in education, employment, and life by forging strong relationships, mentoring, and providing support and opportunities. And we never give up, even when a youth has given up on themselves. At COMPASS, we work with our youth to change how they see the possibilities in life and their sense of self-worth.
