Since 2017, Hillside Connection has served 500+ youth boys (grades 1st – 9th) and youth girls (grades 1st – 6th). We believe in a five-tiered approach towards youth development, consisting of five pillars to success: sports development, enrichment activities, community engagement, competitive leagues, and academic & family support services.
In order to serve our community & ultimately increase our youth populations’ probability of breaking through the systemic structures to success, H.C. needed a consistent space to operate. In Dec 2021, the H.C. Enrichment Space opened to provide a safe space for children and families to grow and develop, promoting generational changes to the cycles which entrap many underserved populations from achievement. #HILLSIDESTRONG
