Stamford Peace Youth Foundation

Stamford Peace Youth Foundation uses high level basketball instruction, training, and competition as well as academic support, to positively influence young people and help them achieve their full potential on and off the court. PEACE's efforts are supported by two key pillars: PEACE Basketball, and our Beyond Limits Academic Program. PEACE Basketball offers a first-rate basketball educational experience emphasizing the development of strong fundamentals and high quality competition, as well as establishing a culture of excellence among our players and in our overall approach to the game. Among our PEACE Basketball offerings are a boys' winter house basketball league; over a dozen elite-level boys' and girls' travel AAU basketball teams; Trifecta Hoops summer and vacation day basketball camps; an outdoor summer league at Scalzi Park; year-round clinics and open gym activities; and individual training. Rather than focusing exclusively on wins and losses, the goal of Stamford Peace includes using the game of basketball as a vehicle through which to positively influence academic achievement, community service, and other life skills within Stamford and other lower Fairfield County communities. To that end, our Beyond Limits Academic Program employs a peer-to-peer approach in which local high school students provide one-on-one academic tutoring, primarily in math and science, to other local middle school and high school students, and fees are highly subsidized by Stamford Peace. In addition to regular tutoring, our Beyond Limits program conducts periodic workshops and other enrichment activities covering such topics as financial literacy, standardized test preparation, college planning and others.
