Alongside scholarship opportunities for classes, NECCA developed Circus in the Neighborhood to reach out to at risk youth, developmentally and physically challenged children and adults and others challenged by limited resources to share with them opportunities for joy, inspiration and physical fitness through circus arts.

Circus has been shown to be an excellent medium for working with youth and adults focusing on social development, self esteem, communication skills, and team building as it is non competitive, open to all body types, creative and physically involving.

Circus in the Neighborhood partners with community organizations including Boys & Girls Club, The Retreat, Youth Services, Brattleboro Housing Authority, Windham Southeast Supervisory Union and others to provide direct experiences that are shown to improve physical and mental health through circus.
