Community service and volunteer opportunities

We offer support for students and student organizations who seek to engage in community service. Visit the Wesley Center or schedule an appointment to learn more about community partners and community service opportunities.

You can also find ways to get involved on Handshake, the Career Development Center's database for jobs, internships, and volunteer opportunities. Log in to your Handshake account using your Hamline email address and password to access the most recent postings.

McVay Youth Partnership

The McVay Youth Partnership is an after-school program for middle and high school youth to socialize, study, and be creative three afternoons a week. Hamline students serve as mentors and role models, working in partnership with area churches and community centers. McVay fellows and interns provide homework help, lead theme-based programming, plan recreation, and teach cooking, music, and crafts.
