CONCORD, NH Volunteer NH is soliciting input from New Hampshire residents via an online survey to help shape the vision for AmeriCorps service programs and volunteer initiatives in their 2023-2025 State Service Plan.

The survey can be accessed at this link: 

“Each year, more than 2,200 AmeriCorps members of all ages serve across 300 host sites within cities and towns across the Granite State, tackling some of our toughest challenges,” said Gretchen Stallings, Volunteer NH Executive Director. “Our goal is to assess the public’s opinion on areas of need so that we may allocate resources where they will be most effective in the years to come.”

Feedback provided by participants will help shape the landscape of national service for the next three years. The State Service Plan survey includes questions to prioritize specific concerns the public faces within the following areas:

  • Disaster services
  • Economic opportunity
  • Education
  • Environmental stewardship
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Veterans and military families

Individuals from all backgrounds and industries are invited to participate in the survey. In order to collect the most useful data, Volunteer NH is especially eager to hear from representatives of:

  • AmeriCorps programs
