"Future 5 believes in all the potential of high school students! Founded in 2009 by Clif McFeely this mentoring program believes that all of Stamford CT’s high school students should be connected to their full life’s potential, regardless of income or family circumstances. They do this by offering motivated students an opportunity for membership in a caring community. A community that helps them connect with themselves and the character traits of optimism, determination, and grit. Future 5 volunteers do whatever it takes to help students stay on track through high school and achieve a plan for college or career training."
