KeyBank Foundation donates $75,000 to Boys & Girls Club of Stamford to launch Key to Success program for middle schoolers

KeyBank Foundation has pledged a three-year grant of $75,000 ($25,000 per year) to Boys & Girls Club Of Stamford (BGCS) to support a new program called Key to Success.  The program provides targeted educational enrichment programming to a cohort of sixth graders in the 2017-2018 academic year, and tracks performance over the next three years as they complete middle school. Expected program outcomes include improved academic performance, reduced school absenteeism, and avoidance of summer learning loss typically experienced during school vacation months.  The program includes students from Cloonan Middle School and Rippowam Middle School. 

“The Boys and Girls Club of Stamford greatly appreciates KeyBank Foundation’s commitment to the youth of Stamford,” said BGCS Executive Director Michael Cotela. “This three year grant will allow us to track the progress of our members and provide learning programs that support Stamford School System’s educational initiatives.”

Cohort members will participate in educational enrichment programming that includes Power Hour homework, STEM, Write Brain, Sparks History, Chess, and Stride Academy.  Members will also select from a number of character and leadership development programs such Torch Club, SMART Moves, Passport to Manhood, Live Girl, and Positive Actions.  School attendance, quarterly report cards, and club/summer camp involvement will be tracked over the three year grant period with the expectation that students will demonstrate improved academic performance over benchmarked data, will be better prepared for success in high school, and will improve their social and emotional skills.      

“One of Key’s philanthropic funding priorities is education – with particular focus on supporting programs that drive student academic performance and successful graduation rates in disadvantaged populations,” said Bruce Rogers, regional director for Key Insurance & Benefits Services and long-time BGCS board member. “BGCS’ programming is fully aligned with the Stamford public schools, and making a measurable difference in the lives of many Stamford schoolchildren. We are proud to support their efforts.”

Free Screening of The Journey is the Destination at Avon Theatre

The Avon Theatre will be hosting a FREE screening of The Journey is the Destination on Wednesday, April 4th at 7:00p.m.

A Pre-film Reception will be held at 6:00pm, as well as a Post-film Q&A with Producer Kathy Eldon.

Tickets are FREE to the general public. RSVP required.

About the Film: The Journey is the Destination is inspired by the true story of Dan Eldon, a charismatic young artist, explorer and photojournalist, who led a group of unlikely teens on a safari across Africa to deliver aid to a refugee camp in Malawi in 1990. The film follows Dan as he then finds himself covering a famine and spiraling civil war in Somalia as Reuters’ youngest photojournalist in history.

Although set in the early 1990s, the film highlights contemporary issues surrounding refugees caught in conflict zones, the radicalization of youth, the role of journalists, and how passionate young people can make a difference in the world. Ultimately, THE JOURNEY IS THE DESTINATION celebrates the vibrant and fulfilling life that is possible when we commit to live, not only for ourselves, but also for others.

Malloy Announces Partial Activation of State's Emergency Operations Center Ahead of Snowstorm

(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Dannel P. today announced that he will partially activate the state’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) beginning at 4:00 a.m. on Tuesday, March 13, 2018 to monitor storm conditions across the state and prepare for winter weather that is forecast to have an impact on morning and potentially afternoon travel. Forecasts are showing a range of accumulation across the state, with the heaviest amounts occurring in central and eastern Connecticut.

“As we continue to monitor the most up-to-date forecasts on tomorrow’s impending snowstorm, our state agencies are working around the clock to ensure we are prepared to respond to this latest round of winter weather,” Governor Malloy said. “The snow is expected to impact the morning commute in central and eastern Connecticut, so if motorists must travel, they are encouraged to take it slow and remember their winter weather driving skills.”

The state’s EOC will be staffed with personnel from the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection, the Department of Transportation, the Connecticut National Guard, the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, the Department of Public Health, the Department of Administrative Services, and liaisons from Eversource and United Illuminating.

The current snowfall forecast is estimating 4-8 inches in western Connecticut, 8-12 inches in central Connecticut, and 10-16 inches in eastern Connecticut. Light snow is expected to develop between 2:00 – 4:00 a.m., becoming moderate to heavy in the central and eastern portions of the state as the day goes on.

The Connecticut Department of Transportation has 634 plow trucks and 200 private contractors ready to clear the roads.

If motorists need to travel tomorrow, they are reminded of their winter weather driving skills:

  •          Clear the snow and ice from your vehicle
  •          Always wear your seat belt
  •          Give yourself extra time to get to your destination
  •          Be aware of potentially icy areas such as bridges
  •          Keep a safe distance of at least five seconds behind other vehicles and trucks that are plowing the road
  •          Don't pass snowplow trucks
  •          Keep an emergency winter driving kit in your car
