Center for New Americans
The Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) Center for New Americans, hosted in partnership with YWCA New Hampshire, launched in December of 2017 to better serve the needs of the New American community in Manchester, NH. The program’s foundation is a safe space that welcomes anyone who enters, no matter their path to get there.
All youth attending the Center for New Americans are given appropriate transportation, a snack, and the ability to learn and grow. We also strive to build a more cohesive community in Manchester, and often host family dinner nights and other cultural celebrations for the community we serve.
For adults, SNHU partners with the YWCA NH to host the WELL, a space for wellness, education, language, and learning. This space seeks to advance continuing education for New Americans as well as create pathways for employment.
