Campus Compact for NH - Franklin School District
 
 
 
The Northern New England Campus Compact VISTA Program is focused on the development of programming on campuses across Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont that will increase access to higher education for low income individuals by providing programming focused on improving college aspirations, increasing the belief that college is an option, and increasing access to higher education for low income individuals seeking higher education. We are currently recruiting for a team of VISTAS to serve at host sites across the state to achieve these goals.

Member Duties : GEAR UP (Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs) is designed to increase the number of low-income students who are prepared to enter and succeed in post-secondary education. GEAR UP New Hampshire seeks to improve the high school graduation rates, college going rates and first year retention rates of students from three of the most resourced challenged regions of the state, including the Lakes Region, Southwest and North Country. Some of the activities the VISTA at Franklin School District will do are: create a peer-to-near-peer mentoring program, organize a region-wide FAFSA completion day, and work with school administrators and counselors to develop a way to teach students, especially those that will be first-generation students, social and communication skills for college—such as self-advocacy, self-awareness, persistence, and self-discipline to persist in the face of obstacles.
