Mohawk receives $1M to support City School program


Mohawk College has received a $1M donation from Branthaven Homes to support the City School program, which helps students from underserved communities gain education and find meaningful careers. The donation will create new education and employment opportunities related to residential construction and will support a $2M, five-year workforce development strategy. This strategy will leverage City School rapid skills-training programs and other Mohawk assets to increase training capacity and address labour shortages, and will include developing industry-focused training programs, addressing and removing barriers faced by those in underserved communities, promoting careers in construction trades, and delivering demand-led programs through City School. Mohawk honoured the donors’ generosity with the unveiling of the Branthaven Construction Trades, Technology & Research Centre, and Branthaven Homes’ support will also be recognized in City School’s mobile classroom branding.
