PASS Program Wins Award!

Students, faculty and staff at PASS (Program Alternative to Secondary School) in the Manchester School of Technology (MST) collaborated with students and faculty from UNH Manchester’s Community Leadership Program to provide warm clothing to thousands of people in this area. They showed us how service projects can be good for the community and powerful tools for integrated learning. Teachers and students have been using the Warmth from the Millyard project as a foundation for study in all of their classes. They identified where hundreds of items of clothes are made, learning more about geography, economics and politics. In Math and Technology, they created databases and developed statistical analyses.

In English and Communication, they worked with UNH Manchester students to create public conversations about readings related to community activism, social justice and leadership. As part of their work in Business, they contacted and met with numerous business owners and recipient organizations, learning public speaking and project management skills. During the celebration of this partnership this winter, PASS and UNH students worked together to share their successes with Manchester teachers and administrators, community and family members, and Governor Lynch.
