Mohawk Student Leadership Academy

What is the Mohawk Student Leadership Academy?    

Highly involved student leaders are selectively chosen to participate in a 2 day leadership retreat known as the Mohawk Student Leadership Academy (MSLA). Key skills, training and resources help attendees excel as student leaders. Upon completion, students receive exclusive volunteering opportunities, an enhanced opportunity for on campus employment, and will become a member of MoCrew representing Mohawk at events.

MoCrew Testimonials

Testimonials from our MoCrew

Hear what our MoCrew members have to say about the Mohawk Leadership Academy.

Pushed me to challenge myself and become more of a leader. A great experience where I met alot of great people. Everyone makes you feel welcomed and invited. If you dare to do something different, then the Leadership Academy is for you!

~Nella Paris

I met amazing leaders/students, and made new friends. My most memorable experiences at the leadership Academy were the High Ropes, and the Amazing Race! I discovered new strengths in myself, and the power of team work. I also learnt how to put these strengths in action. I learned to trust in myself and in others. During Leadership Academy, I applied in real life everything I learnt at Mohawk College such as; Collaboration, Communication, Continuous Learning, and Critical Thinking skills.

~Talin Noranian-Boer

The MSLA introduced me to other students at the college that had the want to get involved like me. It taught me skills that I use on a daily basis whether it be in a leadership role or not. I met people at MSLA that I count today as friends and I also had tons of fun.

~Donna Terry

The MSLA is a excellent jumping-on point for students looking to get more involved with their school and their community. You meet the leaders of MoCrew, make friends with other students across the campus, and can participate in fun wilderness events to build teamwork, listening, and leadership skills. Anyone at Mohawk who gets the chance to be a part of this experience should certainly take it.

~Adam Culp

The MSLA took a very diverse group of students and not only turned us into leaders but also lifetime friends. Teamwork encouraged people to come out of their comfort zone and achieve great things!
I highly recommend the MSLA to anyone interested in learning more about Mohawk, leadership, and themselves!
Go #TeamOrange !!

~Amy Barlow

My experience at the MSLA was one of the highlights in my time as a Mohawk College student; I learned so much about teamwork, co-operation, and the value of both as tools to use in everyday life. I also learned that in some situations, two heads really are better than one.

The moment from the MSLA that sticks out most in my mind is by far the high ropes course; it felt overwhelming to be up there in the air, hanging by my hands after my feet had slipped. But hearing my teammates below me, yelling their encouragement…that was exactly the boost I needed. That’s the power of teamwork. I hope the students this year have just as much fun as I did last year!
