2012 CYNH Corps First Service Day

2012 City Year New Hampshire

On Monday, August 13th, the 2012-2013 New Hampshire corps celebrated their first day doing physical service at Hillside Middle School and Derryfield park.  Corps members spent their day designing and painting murals bearing school themes, painting main office rooms and beautifying Derryfield Park.

As I walked around each project site, I was inspired knowing that these young people, will be the next generation of leaders that will experience a year of love, hard-work, responsibility and appreciation for their schools, students and greater Manchester community.  To quote Team Leader, Kate Meskey, “I saw corps members willingness to be flexible and find a lot of value in the smallest asks to see the bigger picture of why we serve.”

After ten months, I look forward to hearing corps members uniquely define their City Year and share what they’ve learned.  To view more photos of the corps in service, click here.
