Community Service Initiative
The second half of the school year for our Peer Leadership groups involves community service projects.
Each freshman group, along with their Peer Leaders, is tasked with using the leadership and community-building skills they've acquired thus far to help effect change within the Hamden Hall community and indeed the greater community, if possible.
"Each peer group participates in a culminating community service project with the objective of affecting change at Hamden Hall or within the greater community,” explained Peer Leader co-advisors Tricia Dowcett and Charlie Alexander.
The initiative was first started during the 2016-2017 school year. Since then, community service projects have included the making and building of the toy robots that were distributed to domestic violence victims at a center on Whitney Avenue, Another project garnered donations for a local animal shelter after the Peer group coordinated a dog-petting fundraiser on campus.
