Given the unpredictable nature of the COVID-19 pandemic and current health guidelines, UNH has cancelled its 2020 in-person summer on-campus youth programs.

The health and safety of our participants and staff are always, but especially now, a priority. We are disappointed that we cannot provide our usual in-person interactions with youth. We look forward to a healthier 2021.

Youth who live in Manchester attend for free.  Contact Sarah Grosvenor, sarah.grosvenor@unh.edu for more information.
