Putting a college education within reach of everyone in Hamilton is the goal of our City School by Mohawk initiative.
The Government of Ontario last week announced a $1.6 million investment that will allow us to take City School on the road in 2017. We were honoured to welcome the Hon. Deb Matthews, Minister of Advanced Education and Skills Development, MPP and Mohawk Alumni of Distinction recipient Ted McMeekin and East Hamilton resident and Sherman Neighbourhood Hub member Steve Calverley
We’ll be launching a Mohawk City School mobile next year that will serve as a classroom on wheels. We’ll also be investing in permanent locations in priority neighbourhoods.
We currently run City School in North Hamilton at the Eva Rothwell Resource Centre and in the downtown core at the Hamilton Public Library.
City School offers tuition-free college credit courses and workshops. Hamiltonians can earn their first college credit and gain the confidence to continue their studies at Mohawk.
On the journey to post-secondary education, we want City School to serve as basecamp.
