Take a step with us and imagine a world without prejudice. Imagine a community that celebrates each other’s differences. The Discovery Center works toward a future that is more fair and equitable, and your generous donations help make it possible!
Our mission is to shape positive attitudes about race and differences. Our programs inspire young people from different cultural, racial, and socio-economic backgrounds to accept and value our unique identities. Our work, fostering an appreciation of our differences and our similarities, is delivered via a curriculum that is grounded in experiential learning and anchored to CT Core Standards.
Your donation provides programming for more than 3500 students from the Greater Hartford area – students who were challenged and inspired by these words spoken at our Opening Ceremony at the Residential Program:
You are powerful.Everything is changeable.The things that are fair and equitable in our society and our communities have not always been so.People have had to struggle and work hard to change the way we treat one another for the better.They did so, together, with other people who could also see in their minds a picture of a more fair and equitable world.
Take a step...see, connect, respect, and love those around you. Learn to work together, creating communities in which everyone is included and valued.
Take a step...examine the lives of change-makers of the past, and understand how their communities took action for change.
Take a step...ask the hard questions that help change the world.
Take a step...dream about the future - see yourself in it.
Do you see yourself in a more fair and equitable world? If you do, we invite you to partner with us to provide powerful learning experiences for students all over Connecticut.
