Haldimand County – Mohawk College Partnership Lets Residents Try College For Free

This fall, Haldimand County residents will be able to give college a try for free at the Dunnville Library. College 101 – presented by Mohawk College City School in partnership with Haldimand County Public Library – helps adults 19+ who are not currently enrolled in school prepare for success in a college environment. Participants who complete the 12-week program will earn a free general education credit towards their post-secondary studies at Mohawk.

College 101 will run two afternoons per week for 12 weeks at Haldimand County Public Library’s  Dunnville Branch beginning September 25. The program covers topics like what to expect in college, how to study and how to manage time/deal with stress. Participants will learn how to think critically, prepare an education/career plan, and how to be an adult student (while juggling work and daily life).

“In communities with limited local access to post-secondary education, the HCPL – Mohawk College partnership provides an opportunity for individuals to experience college programs in-person without the financial and personal stresses of jumping into post-secondary education full force,” says Lindsay Thomas, Community Outreach Coordinator for Haldimand County Public Library.

“Partnership programs like College 101, which the library plans to offer twice per year in various communities, and other programs like the Skilled Trades Awareness & Readiness Training, provide community members the building blocks they need to pursue their career dreams,” Thomas added.

Anyone interested in registering for College 101 may contact Mohawk College directly at 905-575-2489 or cityschool@mohawkcollege.ca. For more information about this and other learning opportunities through Mohawk College, visit Mohawk College’s website.
