  • About Hand in Hand

    Hand in Hand

    Hand in Hand is a Hamline University student organization that pairs Hamline University students with Hamline Elementary students through a mentoring program at the elementary school. Hand in Hand creates and fosters positive relationships between elementary students and members of Hamline University’s academic community. Not only does the program provide young students with the opportunity to have an older friend and experience a piece of university life, but university students are also provided with the opportunity to gain new perspectives on community involvement and life in general.

    An initiative of the Hand in Hand program is to increase college awareness in the lives of the youth at Hamline Elementary. Hand in Hand buddies are able to conceptualize college life and connect K-12 academic choices with post-secondary access. Hamline University mentors share their knowledge of college and discuss with their Hamline Elementary buddies future plans for life after high school.

    In addition to their weekly buddy sessions, Hand in Hand mentors bring their Hamline Elementary buddy to visit Hamline’s campus for Large Group Events. At these events, elementary students experience a piece of University life, playing large group games, eating food together, and discussing college.
