Connect Community Garden


The Connect Community Garden is an open gardening space to educate young people on the power of horticulture. Community members will cultivate their own relationships with nature by growing their own food. This will both inspire and empower young people to explore their interests and widen their potential.

The Connect Center is thrilled to invite community members to take the fresh produce they grow in our community garden into the Connect Kitchen to help build a solid foundation of healthy eating.

Connect S.T.E.A.M. Lab: Phase two


Connect S.T.E.A.M. Lab: Phase twoConnect S.T.E.A.M. Lab: Phase twoConnect S.T.E.A.M. Lab: Phase two
 The S.T.E.A.M acronym stands for science, technology, engineering, arts and math. The completed lab will be an innovative space where youth can explore and develop skills for a diverse set of activities. These skills will be necessary to widen their potential and to keep them competitive in a rapidly evolving education and job market. The Connect S.T.E.A.M. Lab currently includes a Black Box Theater and Music Studio.

Our second phase of construction on the S.T.E.A.M. lab includes two projects. The first is the technology hub- a space to learn coding, website building, graphic design, and more. We are also looking to start our own First Lego League team using this space. The second project will be "Stage 49"- a media creation space with fully equipped cameras, gear, and a green screen so community members can learn how to make their own movies.

Connect Kitchen


The Connect Kitchen will be a fully functional commercial sized kitchen available both to be rented out for community use, to be used in fundraisers, and to instruct local youth in the culinary arts.

The Connect Center looks forward to collaborating with local chefs to bring about a diverse range of culinary styles to the Connect Kitchen.
