City Year New Hampshire

28 126229


2023 Goals:

Our teams of City Year AmeriCorps members serve full time in schools as student success coaches — tutors, mentors and role models — who are uniquely positioned to connect with students throughout the school day and during extended learning time. Our members are trained to help foster environments where students can thrive and reach their full potential. They build strong, positive relationships with students and provide research-based academic and socio-emotional support and personalized learning and engagement. In addition, our City Year AmeriCorps Members’ year(s) of service provide professional development and leadership opportunities that enable them to become engaged and active members of our community.

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-lasting impact in our state and to recognize the service impact of City Year AmeriCorps members. We also host Cocktails & Celebrations in the summer at the Currier Museum of Art to celebrate service and our shared commitment to community.
