In recognition of the contributions and support of Brock University’s Co-op Education Program, three Niagara organizations (including CMHA Niagara), were chosen as the “Brock Co-op Employer of the Year Award”.
As the selected recipient in the Non-profit category, CMHA Executive Director Tara McKendrick said “we are honoured and proud of our successful partnership with Brock and our shared goal of strengthening mental wellness in Niagara. It’s a privilege to support the growth and development of these very talented students!”
Launched in 2020, “Brock Co-op Employer Award” is an annual award to recognize one organization from each category: Large, SME and Non-profit. These organizations have made outstanding contributions to Brock’s Co-op education program through the consistent employment of Brock co-op students, by providing quality co-op work term experiences including training and mentorship opportunities for our students, as well as their on-campus engagement in initiatives such as Co-op Professional Preparation courses.
