About Hartford Knights
The Hartford Knights is a non-profit organization that began in 2000 by Executive Director, Bernard Thomas. The Hartford Knights Youth Organization (HKYO) began as a basketball-centric association and grew into a mentoring service organization for at-risk youth.
Thomas realized after years of coaching young men in basketball, that there was a need for long term changes for these youth. He decided to utilize athletics to influence their academics. In 2005, the Organization had begun an academic enrichment and mentoring program. As time went on, the HKYO connected with local schools, the Department of Family and Children Services (DCF), Connecticut’s Court Support Services Division (CSSD), and other referring agencies to mentor youth in Hartford’s Promise Zone.
The Hartford Knights is a preeminent non-profit youth mentoring organization that provides Connecticut’s most vulnerable children with the support, hope and the skills needed for a successful future. For decades we have served youth in the greater Hartford area, proving them with education, life skills, job opportunities, and a second chance at a successful future.
The HKYO works in collaboration with local schools in the Promise Zone and is an accredited service provider to DCF, and Connecticut’s Court Support Services Division (CSSD).
