Still looking for Volunteer Hours? Advertising students at Mohawk College are looking for student volunteers to participate this Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 6 p.m. in a video shoot in the parking lot of Mohawk College. This is a large group aerial photograph so lots of volunteers are needed. Students need to simply show up at Mohawk at 10:00 a.m. in the parking lot. Please bring a copy of the volunteer form with you (available in the Student Services website) and group leaders on site will be able to sign your form at the end of the day.
