House and Neighborhood Development

Purpose Statement

HAND is dedicated to involving Harvard/Radcliffe students in public service projects in the Cambridge and Greater Boston Community. Inspired by the principle of neighborhood and motivated by the desire to be good neighbors, HAND volunteers work as partners with members of the community, in the Cambridge public schools to enrich and improve the city both call home. HAND provides a model for building public service into everyday life at Harvard and beyond. Currently, the program provides an after-school Study Hall program to those enrolled at Graham and Parks School.
