Teammates

What is Teammates?

Are you a BHSU student looking to make a positive difference in the life of a child? If so, Teammates may be the program for you!  

Teammates is a mentorship program that links K-12 students in our community with BHSU education majors for 1 hour each week. One of the first clinical experiences of Black Hills State University’s students who want to become teachers, is focused on developing caring skills. Research shows that teachers who care, and can demonstrate their caring, have a greater capacity to increase student achievement. Toward that end, sophomore-level students are given the opportunity to participate in Teammates.
