What if there was an app to help your child find free homework help, a great outdoors club, or a summer camp for budding scientists? ConnectMe! is a brand-new app designed exclusively for Chapel Hill-Carrboro to help you and your kids find great programs around the area and the directions to get them there, whether on Chapel Hill’s free bus system, bike, car or on foot. Take advantage of everything our community has to offer with ConnectMe!
How does it work?

Choose from filters like Arts, Academic Support, Health/Wellness, Summer Camps, and to quickly see a list of all the resources that are available to you.
- Event Calendar: Instantly view a list or calendar view of all the special events happening in Chapel Hill-Carrboro. There is always something going on, so be sure to check-in for informative, useful, and fun events for you and your family!
- Service Learning: In Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools, all students must complete 25 hours of service in order to graduate high school. Using the ConnectMe! App makes it easy. The “Service Learning” tab under “Browse” lists many community service opportunities for those who are struggling to finish their required hours or looking for ways to serve the community. Visit the calendar or list of events to get started today!

We’ve partnered with Chapel Hill Transit, the largest fare-free bus system in the country to get you there in the fastest, most convenient way possible. Choose and go!
