Interested In Quest?

Are you a mid-career professional who wants to strengthen your leadership skills while also making a meaningful contribution to the community?
Are you a recruiter who has heard about Quest but would like to learn more to help identify the appropriate employees for the program?

Quest is a process of self discovery and growth. Participants return to their organizations not only with stronger relational and leadership skills, but with a heightened appreciation for the communities in which they live and work.

"Quest has not only helped me understand how to work with others, but I learned how I operate and think as my own person. I've learned more about myself over the past seven months than I have in my entire life. Thank your for this experience! It's changed my life!" - Jackie Valliere, HYPE Program Specialist, MetroHartford Alliance, Quest 2016

We are accepting applications now for the 2017 Quest Program that begins in January. Please email Julie Connolly at or call 860.206.5069 for more information.
