SPEF’s new Student-Athlete Program will provide academic support to student-athletes from Stamford High School and Westhill High School. Approximately 60 student-athletes from each high school will be supported. These student-athletes will meet with SPEF volunteers after school, either one-on-one or in small groups, to foster academic, athletic, social, and emotional growth. SPEF volunteers will work together with the students to create a plan based on the student’s individual needs that will enforce accountability and provide the students with the resources necessary to thrive.
