What We Do

ACROSS NH is a project dedicated to supporting out of school time (OST) professionals in their work to create high quality, innovative programs for New Hampshire’s school age children. Thanks to funding from the Bureau of Child Development and Head Start Collaboration, we provide technical assistance and professional development opportunities to out of school time providers throughout the year.
