Community Engagement

The Community Engagement Committee is the driving force behind many of the West Hartford Chamber’s outward facing, community events and programs.

Youth to Business – Through its partnership with West Hartford Public Schools, the West Hartford Chamber collaborates on a variety of initiatives to bring local professionals into our schools to speak with students in areas related to professional development.  Past programs have included personal branding and maintaining positivity as a means to personal growth.  

West Hartford Public School Mentorship Program – The West Hartford Chamber of Commerce partners with West Hartford Public Schools to provide mentors for school children.  Mentees commit to 30 minutes per week, spending non-academic time with a student at schools across town.   


WeHa Wellness: Health & Wellness Fair –Each spring, The West Hartford Chamber partners with Blue Back Square to highlight a wide range of practitioners, including medical providers, spa & salon services, fitness centers, nutritionists, mental health assistance, and non-profits that support health and well-being. This event is free and open to everyone.
