City Year New Hampshire


2019 Goals:

Our service impact goals are to improve student success in three key areas: Attendance: 50 percent of students end the year at or above 90 percent average daily attendance and are no longer chronically absent. Behavior: 50 percent of students demonstrate growth in positive behaviors and social emotional skills. Coursework: 60 percent of students meet or exceed expected growth in math and English language arts course performance. Using the research-based, Whole School Whole Child model, City Year members serve full-time in schools as tutors, mentors and role models to students who struggle in one or more of these three key areas.

Fundraising Events:

City Year New Hampshire hosts our annual fundraising event, Starry Starry Night, each spring where business and community leaders gather to honor those who have made a significant and long-standing impact in our state and to recognize the service impact of City Year AmeriCorps members.
