In 2015 more than 7,000 youth participated in the Boys and Girl Clubs of Hartford's services and programs, which are designed to provide the skills they need for future success. Club President and CEO, Sam Gray, discusses the programs with Eric Clemons.
There are 1,000 mentors working with an equal number of children this year, and Nutmeg Big Brothers-Big Sisters has created 65,000 relationships between "bigs" and "littles" over its 50 year history. President and CEO, Andy Fleischmann explains.
By 2020, it's estimated that 65% of jobs will require post-secondary education. But educational gaps still exist across socio-economic, gender, and racial lines. Dr. Michael L. Lomax of the United Negro College Fund addresses today's educational needs. Visit the United Negro College Fund on the web at www.UNCF.org
