In the Granite State Service Corps, direct service AmeriCorps members serve at-risk youth across New Hampshire. Many Granite State youth have been impacted by trauma and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), which, without proper support, can negatively affect success, health, and functioning long-term.
The good news? The impacts of ACEs can be counteracted, and one of those “counter-ACEs” is relationships. The Granite State Service Corps aims to introduce stability and positive relationships into the lives of at-risk middle and high school youth by pairing them with AmeriCorps member mentors, who regularly meet one-on-one with a caseload of ten students to increase their resiliency, social and emotional skills, and self-sufficiency—in essence, serving the “whole child.”
Members are placed at host site organizations across the Granite State, from the Seacoast’s Dover and Rochester to Tilton, by the lakes and mountains, to southern New Hampshire’s cities of Concord, Manchester, and Nashua. Host sites include schools like Next Charter School and Kreiva Academy; community organizations such as the Dover Housing Authority and Nashua Police Athletic League; and afterschool programs like the Boys & Girls Club of Manchester.
