We continues to adapt to new ways of teaching, new disciplines of study and new ways of learning. Your gift enriches the experience of all students by supporting efforts to recruit top faculty, expand academic programs and respond to the emerging needs of our students.
Many of our students are in the midst of financial hardships. All though they strive to balance life, work, family, and a sense of giving back to their community, they can not always navigate the ups and downs of their economic situations. Great Brook Academy’s scholarship programs offer relief and the opportunity for these students to enrich their lives and begin a new chapter of career when they otherwise may not have had the chance.
Giving a tax deductible donation to Great Brook Academy is a sure way to help us meet our mission of providing this much needed education and certification into our communities.
This scholarship is intended for those students seeking to become certified as Emergency Medical Responders, Emergency Medical Technicians, or Advanced Emergency Medical Technicians. These students will ultimately provide pre-hospital care as a licensed New Hampshire EMS provider within their communities from which they live or serve. Some of these prospective students may already have a certification as either a Registered Nurse, Outdoor Emergency Care Technician, or Emergency Medical Responder and are seeking to bridge their education to a certified Emergency Medical Technician program. Great Brook Academy strives to provide a scholarship program for these students who can not afford the full tuition cost.
We focus on scholarships on student who are from the Southwest and Northern parts of New Hampshire as these are areas that have been identified as severely lacking in qualified EMS providers.
Great Brook Academy must always provide the latest training equipment that is utilized by providers in the field. It is our responsibility to instruct students on the relevant and most current tools used within their fields. There is a significant cost to things such as power stretchers, cardiac monitors/defibrillators, and other advanced technology that is used by medical personal as well as CPR and trauma manikins for guided practice by students.
Great Brook Academy looks to our donating partners to help off set the cost of such training equipment and supplies.
More than 350,000 people in the United States suffer from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest each year and just 12 percent survive. However, statistics show that if more people knew CPR, more lives could be saved. Immediate CPR can double, or even triple, a victim’s chance of survival. Increasing survival from cardiac arrest is why we provide a variety of programs for companies, schools and communities to offer lifesaving CPR and first aid training.
Great Brook Academy strives to provide these training programs free of charge to anyone who has the opportunity to participate.
Thanks to you, our students are gaining the knowledge, skills and values to create safer communities and ultimately a safer state for residents and visitors.
