Campus to Community

Campus to Community logo

Launched in 2016, Campus to Community is an initiative at Mohawk College led through the Student Life department. The goal of Campus to Community is to create meaningful connections between Mohawk College students and the Greater Hamilton Community through volunteer outreach projects.

Campus to Community works in partnership with eighteen organizations throughout the Hamilton community to create meaningful volunteer opportunities for our Mohawk students. Students are encouraged to join a Campus to Community volunteer team to regularly volunteer with other students at a local organization.
