The heart of the leader is manifested through service to others. –Artika Tyner

Collaboration is at the heart of the leadership process. Being a leader in your community often starts with volunteerism and a willingness to be accountable to a larger group. Everybody rises when we build community together.

Never volunteered before? Volunteered a lot? Looking to build confidence and communications skills? Mohawk can connect you to opportunities that are good for both new and returning volunteers.
