Spaulding Youth Center serves boys and girls from ages 5 to 21 from across New England. Located in Northfield, NH, our campus is set on a 470-acre scenic hilltop, with woods, fields and mountain vistas. The campus offers a safe, supportive and natural living environment. Campus resources include a high performance special education school, arts building, gymnasium, dining hall, residential cottages, behavioral health center, recreational fields, a ropes and challenge course, walking trails, gardens and more.

Our collaborative team of experts delivers individually-tailored services to children and families with a variety of needs. Each day, we strive to provide meaningful experiences to the individuals we serve with the goal of increasing skills for independence and active learning across the lifespan. Beyond our campus, we partner with outside members of each child’s support team to ensure their progress is lasting. The Spaulding Youth Center community actively balances a focus on each child’s right to a childhood, while working to ensure that children and families have the skills to enjoy a bright future.
