Stay Work Play carries out its mission of supporting ongoing economic, workforce, and community development by promoting the state as a favorable place for young workers and recent college graduates to stay, work and play, through the following programs:
Rising Stars Awards
An initiative of Stay Work Play, in partnership with New Hampshire Public Radio, the Rising Stars Awards celebrate and recognize New Hampshire’s remarkable young people and the businesses that go the extra mile to recruit and retain them.
NH Internships is an initiative to enhance economic conditions in New Hampshire by offering educational employment opportunities to local students and working professionals.
The YPN Summits bring together the leaders and the volunteers of NH’s young professionals networks (YPN) for a half day of networking, professional development and sharing ideas with one another.
In an increased effort to promote NH as a desirable place for young people, 603 Day serves as a celebration of the companies, organizations and places that make up the Granite State! On June 3rd, we celebrate by hosting an event at the I-93 Southbound Hooksett Welcome & Information Center featuring give-aways, music, fun and more to share our love for the Granite State.
Life of the Party
Life of the Party, in partnership between Stay Work Play and the New Hampshire Institute of Politics, is a public policy series featuring presidential candidates and other political figures. Engaging members of NH’s Young Professionals Networks, college students and other young talent, the program allows a chance for free-flowing and casual discussion with political candidates where party politics take a backseat to civil conversation.
