Welcome To The Keane Foundation Website
The Richard M. Keane Foundation was established to create a 9/11 Memorial Sports Center in the Wethersfield community. Richard Keane and two other Wethersfield men died in the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11/2001. A Sports Center in their memory is a positive and wonderful way to commemorate life’s happy events, as well as to remember lives lost.
The purpose of the Foundation in collaboration with the Town of Wethersfield, is to provide a safe and fun environment in which youth can come together to participate in athletic, academic, and social programs with the support and guidance of caring adults.
Keane On Kids After School Enrichment Programs
The Keane on Kids After School Enrichment Program launched in the fall with huge success and continues with a full array of winter and spring offerings.
Keane on Kids After School Enrichment Program’s vision is to consistently provide a variety of After School Enrichment Programs at all Wethersfield Elementary Schools in a safe and fun environment in which all children can participate in athletic, academic and social programs with the support and guidance of caring adults.
Registration is through the Wethersfield Parks and Recreation Department. Online registration for all programs is available at at the website below. Children may sign up for one day or multiple days for programs offered at their school. The Keane on Kids After School Enrichment Director, Caroline Fazzina, has designed programs with suggestions from parents and school administration in mind, while also providing a wide variety of programs for students with different interests. Programs will vary seasonally at each school.
There is also a site coordinator at each school who will greet the children at the end of the school day, ensure that the after school program runs smoothly, and monitor safe dismissal at the end of the program.
