Support for At-Risk Teens and Young Adults

All Youth Count (AYC) is a public-private partnership between Easterseals NH, New Hampshire Division of Youth and Families, and private sector partners that helps foster care youth and those who have recently left foster care, aged 14 to 26. The program assists them in leading successful, independent lives. Through a combination of supportive employment, vocational mentorship, and individualized support, AYC helps at-risk youth overcome barriers to independence and stability.

Why We’re Here

Numerous national studies have shown that youth between 18 and 21 who “age out” of foster care without being adopted or reunited with biological parent(s) are at substantially higher risk of homelessness, incarceration, unemployment, substance misuse, and isolation. In addition, these same studies show that more than 30% of youth 21 years of age who are no longer in foster care are disconnected from work and school. Support from individuals and businesses in our community through organizations like Easterseals NH is critical to help make an impact.
