NORWALK — Norwalk ACTS recently received an $8,500 grant from Antares Capital in support of its community work aimed at enriching and improving the lives and futures of all Norwalk children and youth, cradle to career.
The partnership with Antares Capital began last November with an initial financial investment and has grown to include in-kind support of backpacks and volunteer help at Norwalk ACTS’ Back to School Night at Stepping Stones Museum for Children and involvement in the organization’s leadership committees.
Norwalk ACTS is a member of the national StriveTogether Cradle to Career Network, using the Collective Impact approach to accelerate progress and sustain success in education. Together, the Strive Network impacts over 8 million students nationwide.
On Dec. 5, Norwalk ACTS will be hosting a quarterly Community Convening from 9-11 a.m. at Stepping Stones Museum for Children, open to the public. The meeting will provide the opportunity to network, share ideas and look at data to better understand the community and the needs of children.
