Connect Center

Community, Empowerment, and Innovation

The Connect Center is a 501(c)3 youth-oriented community center


The Connect Center is primarily a safe space for youth to be after school. Once students' basic needs for safety have been met, the organization uses mentorship and youth development programs to allow students to explore their passions, talents, and eventually, a career path.

Connect Partners Program


2020 showed us that we must be prepared at any moment to support and protect our youth. We need to ensure that they will always have a safe place to learn.

In response to this challenge, the Connect Center is launching its Connect Partner Program. Connect Partners commit to a monthly donation to ensure our programs will always be there for children in need.

These monthly donations of any amount will allow us to provide regular programming and easily accessible resources to children and families in Cohoes.
