AT&T Awards $5,000 Grant to Ulbrich Boys & Girls Club

October 8, 2019

Ulbrich Boys & Girls Club has been awarded a $5,000 grant from the AT&T Foundation to support an academic enrichment program where high school students have the opportunity to learn about STEM-based concepts through participation in hands-on projects and experiences that address real-world problems.

The AT&T Foundation grant will support the Ulbrich Boys & Girls Club’s investment in a recently-launched STEM strategy to elevate academic success and inspire youth with STEM experiences. While engaged in STEM activities, youth are able to address real-world problems through hands-on projects.

“Without help from community partners such as AT&T, we would have a tough time providing a high level of programs to our youth and keeping fees low and affordable for families. This grant will help us continue our STEM programs and prepare our youth for the future.” said Executive Director Carlos Collazo.

“We are always grateful for AT&T’s generous support and investment in our community’s educational programs and services. Their commitment to educational pursuits like the Ulbrich Boys & Girls Club’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) experience allows our students the unique opportunity to enrich their lives and achieve academic success. We congratulate the Boys and Girls Club on this investment and also thank them for their recent expansion to serve the needs of the North Haven community.” said Senate Republican Leader Len Fasano and State Representative Dave Yaccarino.

“AT&T aims to identify organizations that are making real differences in the lives of local students and families, and this STEM program is a prime example,” said John Emra, President, AT&T Connecticut. “The Ulbrich Boys & Girls Club provides remarkable resources for Connecticut’s youth, and we are very proud to offer our support to help reach more local students.”

The Ulbrich Boys & Girls Club mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
