Connecticut Humanities’ work with the Connecticut League of History Organizations (CLHO) dates back many years and aligns with our goal of helping the state’s cultural institutions connect effectively with the communities they serve. CLHO is a membership organization that creates connections among those who preserve and share the stories and objects of our past. We partner with CLHO to offer professional development programs like STEPS-CT as well as workshops for the staff, board members and volunteers of the state’s heritage organizations. We also work together developing educational materials to promote visitation to local heritage museums and sites. CLHO and Connecticut Humanities are strong advocacy partners and work together to promote the vital role the humanities and heritage fields play in our communities and schools.
