In the Granite State Education Corps (GSEC), direct service AmeriCorps members serve youth, grades 4-12 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. GSEC 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 or in small groups with a caseload of ten students to increase their resiliency, social and emotional skills, and self-sufficiency—in essence, serving the “whole child. During the Summer, members are placed at host site organizations across the Granite State, from college towns like Durham and Keene, by Black Pond in rustic Windsor, to southern New Hampshire’s city of Manchester. Host sites include Breakthrough Manchester, Upward Bound UNH and Keene, and Camp Wediko.

During our summer programming, Granite members serve as mentors to small groups of students attending host site programming. With extensive training and support, members step into leadership roles, engaging at-risk students in cohort-based youth development programming. This may include academic support, experiential learning, social and emotional skill work, aspirations, and/or clinical/therapeutic interventions.
