Konnecting minds is a non-profit, summer outreach program geared towards providing participants with hands on knowledge on various disciplines in the ever growing business sectors.
The program engages and inspires youths to recognize the fundamental values of education and also to overcome educaional and social difficulties that may arise within their communities.
This we achieved in 2010 by engaging participants in various workshops geared towards the engineering and telecommunication industries in Jamaica among many other activities. This promotes and facilitates positive behavioural patters and creative expressions while establishing good working and team building skills.

Over 2000 kids have benefited
The year we started
For four years the Konnecting Minds Project, developed by Konnexx Services Limited (Konnexx), a telecommunication engineering company, has created educational experiences for many youths by inspiring them to overcome their educational and social difficulties in order to pursue a career in fibre optics engineering and the technical areas of communication.
It aims to increase retention rates and job opportunities for youth who have dropped out of school or were part of a marginalised population at risk of becoming dependent on Jamaica's social system
