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?

  3. OCNI’s Youth Shadow Council (Remote)

The Organization of Canadian Nuclear Industries (OCNI) is an association of more than 200 leading suppliers of the nuclear industry in Canada. OCNI member companies employ more than 15,000 highly skilled and specialized people in Canada, who manufacture major equipment, medical and safe applications of nuclear technology, and provide engineering support services with CANDU and SMR technology for nuclear power plants domestically and internationally.

They are launching their new program, OCNI’s Youth Shadow Council (OYSC), that has been designed to connect youth and industry experts who want to shape the future of the Canadian nuclear industry. They believe that attracting young talent to the nuclear industry will provide a positive impact on its growth and community connections.

The OYSC would function as a volunteer youth advisory group collaborating with the OCNI team to promote youth leadership development and engagement on key issues in the Canadian nuclear energy sector. The OYSC’s commitment would be from September 2021 to April 2022 and will be completely virtual.

Eligibility Requirements:  

OCNI would aim to create a council with a minimum of one member from each province who are:

  1. Canadian Citizens or permanents residents of Canada
  2. Between the ages of 18 – 30 years old
  3.  Students or recent graduates - Individuals are encouraged to apply regardless of academic major, discipline, or field of specialization

OCNI is committed to employment equity, and encourages applications from Indigenous people, persons with disabilities, members of visible minority groups and women.

Applications will be accepted until April 23, 2021.
