Welcome to Mohawk’s Volunteer & Leadership Opportunities Site!

As a result of the rapidly changing situation with COVID-19, all college events and facility rentals on and off campus are cancelled until further notice. Information regarding events can be found at our Mohawk College COVID-19 information website and will be updated frequently.

Please contact student.life@mohawkcollege.ca if you have any questions or concerns.

A positive volunteer experience is our first priority. Whether you are volunteering with Mohawk or a community group, we encourage you to do your due diligence and ask the following questions before getting involved:
  • What health and safety protocols, including any COVID-19 related protocols, are put in place to protect volunteers?
  • How will I receive training for this volunteer role?
  • Who will be my direct supervisor? Who can I contact if I have questions or concerns and my supervisor is unavailable?
Disclaimer: External organizations listed on this site are not always affiliated with Mohawk College. Volunteers should visit community organization websites to learn more about them. Volunteers should never send money or banking information to these organizations.

  3. Autism Dog Services Foster Puppy Raiser

Foster Puppy Raisers are responsible for raising a puppy for 12-18 months in your home with the intent of the dog becoming a service dog to a child with autism. Puppy Raisers take care of the puppies training and socializing as well as following health guidelines and transportation to the veterinarian for medical appointments.

Volunteers must be available to attend puppy training classes every other week in Hamilton and must have access to a vehicle to attend classes and veterinary appointments as needed. Applicants must also be able to commit the necessary time and resources to the training and socializing required for the puppy during it's time with the volunteer. Most equipment is provided as well as all food and veterinary care.
