Campus to Community

Summary

New project creates meaningful connections between students and community

Campus to Community is a new initiative led by the Department of Student Engagement at Mohawk College. The project aims to create meaningful connections between Mohawk College students and the Hamilton and Halton Communities through academic placements and volunteer projects.

In the first year of the project, Mohawk has chosen to work with three community organizations: Ronald McDonald House Charities Hamilton, The Eva Rothwell Resource Centre, and Habitat for Humanity Hamilton/Habitat for Humanity Halton. Each partner works closely with a student leader from Mohawk College. The job of the student leader is to plan and facilitate all the volunteer projects at the community centres, providing support and guidance to their fellow student volunteers.
