Community Partners

If you're looking for a creative way to give back to the community, consider becoming one of Talcott's Community Partners!


The Talcott Mountain Science Center has been a community leader in the non-profit sector for almost 50 years. Talcott students have the potential to be top prospects for future employers--which includes our Community Partner companies. (In fact, many of our partners have stated that they'd like to hire our students now!)


Talcott works with numerous companies, non-profit organizations and independent groups in innovative ways to mutually support each other. Here are just a few examples of how we can work with you:

  • Does your company have expertise in a particular field? Consider providing mentors, project advisors, contest judges, technical resources or other types of support for our students. Our students benefit from your involvement, your employees enjoying giving back and your company benefits from increased visibility in the community.
  • Have a facility or resource that might provide an interesting and educational outing for one of our classes? Let us visit your facility and perhaps you'd enjoy visiting ours! Plan a company outing or retreat for your staff, customers or clients with mountaintop views! We have a variety of meeting rooms, a planetarium/theatre, and outdoor space for team building activities.
  • Perhaps your business is relocating? Talcott appreciates a variety of in-kind donations, including current technologies like computers, audio and video equipment; lab equipment and supplies, musical instruments, sports equipment, furniture, etc. We can take those unneeded supplies off your hands and you'll be helping us develop the leaders of tomorrow!
