BRING IT!!! is more than an afterschool program, it is a life changing program. Housed at Hillside Middle School in Manchester, this initiative is a partnership of more than 10 nonprofit and education entities, reaching over 350 students from throughout Manchester.
While the program is open to any Manchester student from 4th through 12th grade, the majority of participants are from the growing immigrant and refugee communities. BRING IT!!! focuses on creating a safe, enriching place for students to go during out-of-school hours, a place that also offers academic support, literacy enrichment, and opportunities to explore their future in careers or higher education.
