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. Youth LEaD Volunteer (Virtual)

The Youth LEaD program is designed for youth aged 15-24, living in PEEL, with an interest in event planning and marketing!

In the program, participants will help plan a Career Exploration Fair and a Political Townhall event for the community. Last year, the program hosted an online Career Fair that welcomed 75 different Mentors and 1000 guests. They also planned an art exhibit and conference for artists whose ability to exhibit and promote their artwork was affected by the Pandemic.

The program includes 10 days in-class event planning training by Volunteer MBC, followed by the planning, execution and management of an event for the community.  Your volunteer hours will depend on how many hours you put into the project, but the average summer hours gained by our volunteers are approximately 25 hours a week over 8 weeks.

When: 5-10 hours/week, May 17 - July 30, 2021
