The mission of the Stamford Mentoring Program is to provide students who are in need of additional academic and/or social support with the resources and guidance necessary to be successful during middle school, high school, and in all college/ career endeavors. SPEF brings college, corporate, and community volunteers into the Stamford Public Schools for engaging mentoring sessions with students in grades five through twelve.
Launched in 2010, the Stamford Mentoring Program began its impact working with forty-six seventh graders at Dolan Middle School. Due to the program’s success, the Stamford Mentoring Program has expanded its reach, serving 414 Stamford Public School students during the 2014-2015 school year. The program is now nationally-recognized. In 2014, our Stamford Mentoring Program was one of fifteen mentoring programs nationwide to be selected to participate in the Quality Mentoring Assessment Path (QMAP), conducted by the Governor’s Prevention Partnership. Our program was rated as a highly effective program, the top rating possible. The Stamford Mentoring Program received an overall rating of 97% out of 100%.
