Supporting Haddam and Killingworth

Providing opportunities for everyone to collaborate on bettering our community.

Programs that bring us together to better the community.

These programs and workshops offer ways for us all to collaborate and understand how to meet challenges faced in our community. These efforts build community and contribute to bettering everyone’s quality of life, as we share insights and experiences, learn how to deal with issues, and help each other develop new solutions.

Community Service Opportunities

A HKYFS, we believe in the power of community engagement and the positive impact it can have on both individuals and neighborhoods.  By participating, students gain valuable skills and experiences that extend beyond the classroom. Whether it’s volunteering at local events, assisting at food drives, or participating in environmental clean-up projects, students have the chance to develop leadership abilities, teamwork skills, and a sense of responsibility towards others.

Engaging in community service is not just about fulfilling requirements; it’s about building connections, fostering empathy, and making meaningful contributions.

Collaboratively Meeting Community Challenges

The HK Community Coalition meets to share insights into everyday issues and challenges facing the community and to collaboratively develop plans, policies, and strategies to meet those challenges. Issues addressed include alcohol and drug abuse, vaping and marijuana use, and mental health needs and concerns.

The group includes parents and young people, as well as representatives from businesses, the media, law enforcement, schools, faith organizations, health providers, youth-focused agencies, and town leadership. We welcome all residents willing to help build and better our community.

Vaping has become one of the most popular forms of substance use among young people, despite it being illegal to sell to anyone under the age of 21 and growing evidence of its health risks and harms. One pod often contains as much nicotine as an entire pack of cigarettes.
