  • Stamford Academy Career Conversation

    If you’ve had a nontraditional career path to success, share your stories with Stamford Academy students on Friday, November 17th from 9:00a to 12:00p, and stay for food afterwards. At this event, you'll ask our kids about their lives and use your experiences to talk about advice and strategies to set a goal and achieve it.

  • Diner Day 2017 


    Our bellies are still satiated from Diner Day! On Thursday 11/2, our friends and diner patrons received top notch service at Parkway Diner in Stamford, by employees from GE, PwC, and Synchrony Financial. It was busy, fun, coffee-filled, day!
