Handshake America

The Handshake America Scholarship Program consists of eight scheduled sessions between the Students and their Handshake Coaches over the course of a year.  The sessions are mostly workshop-type group discussions focusing on the Handshake 5Practices:  Perseverance, Passion, People, Positivity, and Presence.  Students learn from their Handshake Coaches, peers and special guests who provide different perspectives on what it takes to be successful.

Lake Toxaway Charities is pleased to collaborate with Handshake America in 2021 for the first time with a grant to establish the Handshake program for students in Transylvania County and Western Carolina.
