Community Outreach

The mission of Y-YOUTH Matter is to increase resiliency in our communities’ youth and their families through social-emotional support, academic development and healthy living initiatives, equipping them to achieve their greatest potential.

The Y understands that the future of our community depends on the success of children. Manchester has the 5th highest dropout rate in the state and accounts for 22 percent of the total number of dropouts (NH Department of Education). The Granite YMCA is focused on reducing this dropout rate by working with kids whose lives are complicated by risk factors including poverty, exposure to violence, substance abuse, poor school performance, engagement in risk-taking behaviors, or significant social-emotional difficulties. Our Y-YOUTH Matter programs provide support to students who would otherwise fall through the cracks. Ninety-nine percent of enrolled participants in Y dropout prevention programs live in extremely low to low income families. By providing these services, we are helping to meet a community goal of making sure all children are provided the support they need to successfully move to graduation. Learn more about Y-YOUTH Matter in our program brochure.

We also know that not all children have what they need to thrive academically. That's why we support them with strong role models, researched based curriculum, and enriching experiences that promote academic success. Your gift helps us drive academic achievement through high impact programs that change lives, including:

 

Y-START

Power Scholars

Six-Week Summer Program for At-Risk Middle School Students

Kids from low income families often start school unprepared. Despite progressing at the same rate during the school year, learning gaps widen each summer and these students fall farther behind their peers. This Achievement Gap culminates in low high school graduation and college attainment rates, limited job prospects and negative economic impact.

Power Scholars is a six-week, full day summer program for youth entering grades 6 - 10, operating Monday - Friday for 6.5 hours a day. Power Scholars is highly structured and follows strict quality and fidelity markers, including staff qualifications, training and student/staff ratios, as well as academic and enrichment dosages. Academic rigor, high expectations and engaging learning experiences drive the program. Students receive 180 minutes of daily data-driven, differentiated instruction and remediation in literacy/social studies and math/science led by certified teachers in a highly engaged learning environment. The academic segment is held in the morning from 8:30 am - 12:30 pm.

Afternoon enrichment activities introduce students to their community, provide college and career awareness, art education, STEM, and physical activity. Partnership with community partners such as SEE Science Center, UNH STEM, Manchester Community Music School, Media Power Youth, and Amoskeag Health, allow us to expand our program offering and experiences for our students.

Adventure field trips are held weekly on Fridays to introduce students to NH’s many recreational opportunities. Field Trips have included hiking Pack Monadnock, visiting Stonewall Farm in Keene, taking a boat trip out of Newburyport, MA, and many more.
