  • Free screening of student documentary

    Civic Life Project Mistrust film fest winnerBefore our Stamford Academy student filmmakers make their big debut in NYC, join us at The Palace Theatre in Stamford on Monday, October 5th at 6:30pm for Mistrust's first public screening, followed by a panel discussion. We are proud to again partner with The Civic Life Project and co-sponsor The Palace to bring you this event. The student filmmakers interview police officers and young people to talk about youth/police relationships and what's missing. We look forward to yet another productive, respectful dialogue and hope you can join us.

  • Volunteers make every day special

    camp bike 2upVolunteers make great things possible! During summer camp, these volunteers inspired our campers with a book about colors, then invited all 200 campers to paint a bike frame. They then built the bike out (with the help of our resident bike experts in the Trafigura Work & Learn youth employment program), and voila! A cool, custom ride! Want to volunteer and join the fun? Click here to see just some of the ways our kids could use your help.
