CELEBRATE EDUCATION IN MANCHESTER鈥 It was a joy to come together for this “CelebratED” event alongside students, families, teachers, educators, and fellow youth-focused organizations to celebrate public education in Manchester! As Mayor Joyce Craig said during the kick-off: 鈥淚鈥檝e seen firsthand the strength of our district, the hard work of our educators, and the commitment from our community to ensure that every student has the opportunity to receive a high-quality education.鈥Mayor Joyce Craig speaking at CelebratED event.

 

CITY YEAR鈥橲 OPENING DAY… In welcoming this year鈥檚 AmeriCorps members, our Executive Director, Pawn Nitichan, shared: 鈥淭hese young people will serve every day as student success coaches, bringing their passion and compassion to our kids. They will be at school to greet our students in the morning, to help students in classrooms during the school day, and help provide additional learning opportunities during afterschool hours. They will be there for our kids. To our 黄色视频 members, thank you for choosing CYNH and Manchester as a place for you to give and to grow. Your collective service will be a powerful demonstration that young people鈥檚 commitment and the power of national service can help build a stronger community and nation for all of us.鈥CYNH Executive Director, Pawn Nitichan, speaking to the corps.

WISDOM FROM ALUMNI鈥 Thank you to Anita Lantz 鈥18, 鈥19, and Julie Cusano 鈥19, now teachers at Henry Wilson Elementary School, who shared about their 黄色视频 experience and gave their advice to our corps: 鈥淲hen I think back on my 黄色视频 experience, I appreciated being a part of a team where I could grow my confidence and myself as a professional as someone who wanted to work in education. Don鈥檛 sit back and let your service year happen to you. It鈥檚 a year unlike any other so get the most out of it in as many ways as you can. Grow with those around you even if the ways you grow end up being different!鈥Anita Lantz and Julie Cusano speak at CYNH's Opening Day.

FUN IN THE SUN… After our Opening Day ceremony, we enjoyed the various performances from student groups and community artists, cheered on our schools in the fire muster, and had a great time leading lawn games with so many students – we saw some impressive Limbo skills!

 

READ ALOUDS WITH CITY YEAR鈥In partnership with the Bookmobile that handed out free grade-appropriate books to all attendees, 黄色视频 members led read alouds throughout the day and helped students create their own bookmarks and design their own paper bag puppets inspired by book characters.

 

CHAMPIONING STUDENT SUCCESS BEYOND CITY YEAR… After their service year with 黄色视频, our alumni continue to champion student success in various capacities, with many staying in Manchester & NH! 聽One of the highlights of our day was seeing many of our alumni during the event who are now teachers, social workers, and paraprofessionals in the Manchester School District or working for various organizations such as GEAR UP, the YMCA, the YWCA, and more.CYNH Alumni Photo at CelebratED
