Bank of New Hampshire Helps Keep Kids in School Through Support of City Year NH

Manchester, New Hampshire – March 25, 2015 – Bank of New Hampshire is proud to support City Year New Hampshire at the $10,000 sponsorship level for their 15th Annual Starry Starry Night Gala. The Gala event will be held on Saturday, March 28th from 6 to 10 pm at Wentworth by the Sea in New Castle.

City Year is an education focused AmeriCorps program that unites young people of all backgrounds for a year of full-time team based service. Evidence-based research has determined the early-warning indicators allowing us to identify the students likely to drop out of school. By focusing on students’ ABCs (Attendance, Behavior and Course performance) in Math and English, City Year corps members, working in partnership with teachers, serve as tutors, mentors and role models who are uniquely able to help students stay on track. City Year New Hampshire corps members currently serve in six struggling elementary schools in our state in Manchester.

“The education that City Year NH provides to our youth is vital to our community,” stated Mary Beth White, AVP – Manchester Office Manager for Bank of New Hampshire. “We are proud to support the mission and vision of City Year.”
