The Mayhew Program challenges and helps at-risk boys (ages 10-18) throughout New Hampshire with tuition free support through summer programming, school-year mentoring, employment opportunities, and one-on-one goal planning to ensure they graduate from high school and establish a plan to lead successful lives. This year, Mayhew is serving 237 boys.
2019 marks the 50th year that Mayhew has been challenging and helping at-risk boys to find their best. When a boy is initially referred to Mayhew, it is because someone – a teacher, a guidance counselor, or a community member – is concerned about his behavior, but sees the potential for him to overcome his circumstances. The organization strives to close the opportunity gap for boys in low-income, largely single parent families, by providing a unique combination of a residential summer program with school-year mentoring. A BCAF grant of $3,000 was provided to support their 2019 school-year mentoring program.
