City School by Mohawk is a community-based initiative that aims to break down barriers to education and employment. Through community consultation with neighbours, City School by Mohawk focuses on developing specialized learning programs, workshops and services that will encourage gradual steps to a postsecondary pathway.
Eva Rothwell Centre
The first City School classroom opened in October 2015 and is located on the second floor of the Eva Rothwell Centre (opens new window) at 460 Wentworth St North. Check out a 360 degree image of the classroom here!
New for fall 2017 is our new City School Trades Lab at Eva Rothwell where we will offer pre-trades and technology training! Unfortunately due to the age of the building, the classrooms are not currently wheelchair accessible.
Hamilton Public Library
Our second location opened in June 2016 at the Central branch of Hamilton Public Library (opens new window), located in Jackson Square at 55 York Blvd. City School is collocated with the City of Hamilton's Xperience Annex (opens new window) and the Library's Circuit 4.0 (opens new window) on the fourth floor.
City School Mobile Classroom
Our third location hit the road in fall 2017 to deliver free trades training in neighbourhoods throughout Hamilton. We want to hear from you! Fill out our quick survey (opens new window) and tell us what programs you want us to offer and where you want us to be!

Hear from one of our first students:
"I am a wife and mother of four who has been out of the workforce for over eight years. I am a shy person with very little experience and have had a hard time finding a job. I heard about City School through social media and signed up for the Job Ready Toolkit and Family Dynamics course..." - Lyn
