Husky Sport students and staff work to positively engage with members of the Hartford, CT and UConn communities through the development of right relationships with youth, their adult family members, college students, and community organization collaborators. Through efforts in schools, after school and weekend programs, Husky Sport aims to be a continuous part of the lives of children and families in Hartford’s North End.
Consistent engagement within Husky Sport’s growing community of role models, mentors and mentees, allows for a reciprocal process of personal and social growth. This process occurs as Husky Sport looks to both reinforce and teach the making of positive life choices in the following four areas:
•Healthy nutrition •Relevant and transferable life skills (e.g., respect, communication, leadership) •Exposure to varied sports and physical activities •Academic opportunity and excellence
