We Belong: Youth Leadership and Community Cultures of Care is an initiative by the Connecticut Museum of Culture and History that encourages Asian American and Black students to connect with one another, their guardians, and their community for a better understanding of self and place. This program offers paid opportunities for students between the ages of 15-20 and reside within 30 miles of Hartford.

This program is not limited to young people who have a familiarity with racial issues and advocacy work. The Youth Program allows students to connect one-on-one and in small cohorts with Black and Asian American community leaders and storytellers. Students will have the opportunity to learn skills like oral history, digital storytelling, advocacy, and community-building and apply them. A community gathering at the end of the program will celebrate student work.

The program will take place at the Connecticut Museum of Culture and History and other spaces around the Greater Hartford area.

This program is temporarily suspended–updates will be shared here if we are able to offer this program in 2024 or 2025.
