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. ROLE- Tele-Touch Visits
Description:

Tele-Touch is a Community Support Service that the Victorian Order of Nurses (VON) offers to community members who are socially isolated and need social support. Volunteers for the service are given the opportunity to call an individual (or individuals) in the community with this need and offer a 10-15 min call per week.

By offering this support, the individual is able to begin feeling less socially isolated and alone and the volunteer provides comfort and a wellness check at the same time.

Many of these clients may not have a family member or friend who are able to check on their well being and this call can become vital to the safety of the client themselves.

It is a way to make sure someone is safe as well as putting a smile on their face that may have not been there before. 😊

When: 1 hour or less/week
