Current Projects

Granite State Scholars

Join us as we shape a brand new NH AmeriCorps program, focused on fostering healthy aging and young adult empowerment. This program will allow high school graduates to volunteer for 1-2 years, assisting older adults and building stronger intergenerational networks, in exchange for reduced tuition at any public New Hampshire college or university. By engaging multiple partners, we can ensure that we have a diverse group of skills, knowledge, and perspectives to shape GSS into the best program it can be. We need your creativity and connections!
