Mohawk launches Challenge 2025

November 11, 2020
Mohawk College has launched its Challenge 2025 program, which makes postsecondary education more accessible to vulnerable people in targeted neighbourhoods through satellite or mobile classrooms. Challenge 2025 will expand Mohawk’s City School program to accommodate around 4,000 students over the next five years. Mohawk also plans to open a Rapid Skills Training Centre and will continue to connect students with “life stabilization” supports so that they can join the workforce. Additionally, Mohawk is considering partnering with institutions in British Columbia, Manitoba, and Nova Scotia to test the City School model in other parts of Canada. “We do think it really has the potential to change how we train people, to change the way we get people into employment and change the way we get people out of poverty,” said Mohawk President Ron McKerlie.
