The expansion of the Humanities After School and Creative Writing programs serving immigrant, refugee and underrepresented high school students in Manchester, New Hampshire.

Building on a long-term partnership with the Manchester School District the proposed challenge grant will strengthen the humanities programming within the Access Academy, the Saint Anselm College’s outreach program to refugee, immigrant, and underrepresented high school students. Humanities programming within the Access Academy introduces refugee, immigrant, and underrepresented youth to the richness of cultural contributions of Western cultures and of their native countries or regions. The academy’s humanities programming helps students build academic skills, college readiness and aspirations, and confidence as learners. It also helps them deal with personal issues of culture, identity, and belonging, all via the humanities content. The proposed enhancement will expand humanities courses in philosophy, theology, history, art history, and literature and enrich the creative writing program and attract an additional 60 high school students annually.
