ABOUT NH DESTINATION IMAGINATION
New Hampshire Destination Imagination (NH-DI) is a volunteer led non-profit organization. Our purpose is to inspire and equip students to become the next generation of innovators and leaders.
Also known as NHICC (New Hampshire’s Incredible Creativity Connection), we are entering our 33rd year of running extra-curricular creativity-powered programs that extend in-school learning. Students in our programs learn critical thinking, creativity, cooperation, teamwork, communication skills – and confidence. Many of our adult volunteers learn how to take the same lessons and implement them in the workplace to leverage team innovation.
During the summer months we operate Camp Gottalikachallenge, one of the nation’s first creativity camps.
Each year, Destination Imagination programs attracts:
– Over 3,000 NH students and over 150,000 students worldwide
– 200 NH schools and community groups
– Over 1,000 volunteers – a part of the over 38,000 global volunteers
