Learning How to Make an Impact

SPEF’s Elementary School Mentoring Program is currently running for third through fifth grade classrooms in Stamford Public Schools. Classrooms participate in weekly mentoring sessions in which volunteer high school mentors discuss topics with their mentees related to service-leaning. Each session concludes with a community service project, such as stocking shelves at the food bank, creating and sending holiday cards to soldiers, or cleaning up school playgrounds and parks.

Happiness Is A New Book – Or Two!

Books Across Stamford is an engaging literacy program focused on motivating children to read by distributing new, free books and literacy resources to economically disadvantaged children and families. Each year, SPEF aims to distribute at least 5,000 books throughout Stamford to help children, Pre-K through fifth grade, build home libraries.
