Youth Enrichment Program Expands

Granite United Way (GUW) and Norwin S. and Elizabeth N. Bean Foundation partnered in 2018 to launch the Youth Enrichment Partnership (YEP) to address the complex needs of Manchester’s youth. Amoskeag Health is one of fifteen local nonprofits to receive funding to improve youth access to critical services. Among these critical services is mental health.

Amoskeag Health Behavioral Health Consultant, Kayla Kenney, LICSW, travels to afterschool programs at Boys and Girls Club of Manchester, Granite YMCA, Girls Inc., and other community programs to provide counseling support on-site to middle-schoolers at their enrolled program.

We are pleased to announce a grant of $30,000 through GUW’s CARES Act Funds to expand Kayla’s role in YEP in order to mitigate the impact of Covid-19 on middle and high school age youth in Manchester.

GUW and our YEP partners have offered high praise for Kayla’s work with youth regarding their mental and reproductive health. Amoskeag Health dittos that sentiment.
