Campus Compact for New Hampshire is one of the state’s biggest and longest-serving organizers of AmeriCorps and AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) programs. Initiatives of the federal Corporation for National and Community Service, these national service programs enlist volunteers to address poverty and other issues that affect community vitality.

CCNH currently offers two AmeriCorps programs that build capacity on campus and in the community to fight poverty and strengthen New Hampshire’s communities:

  • Northern New England Campus Compact AmeriCorps VISTA Collaboration
  • New Hampshire Food Insecurity AmeriCorps Program

“During my VISTA year I was able to learn about different issues in higher education, network with leaders in the industry, and apply to graduate school with confidence. Being a VISTA enabled me to give back to my community and helped me start my career off on the right path!” 

— Dan Gannon, former CCNH VISTA
