About Stamford Youth Foundation (SYF):
SYF is a 501(c) 3, not for profit organization that operates programs to serve the youth of Stamford, CT, their parents and the community at large. All SYF officers, coaches and directors are volunteers.

Making our programs available to all of the town’s youths is core to SYF’s mission. SYF also relies upon Stamford’s public facilities such as parks, ball fields and schools to offer our programs. These facilities are made available to SYF and its participants at no cost (except for custodians at some locations) by the City of Stamford.
