it takes a village!

We are fortunate to have such an amazing community at the Hamilton Hive!

There are several volunteer opportunities that we provide to the Hamilton Community. We have several different committees that serve different purposes throughout the organization. Together we make up the Hamilton Hive and take care of the day to day tasks that are required to reach our goals. The different functions of our committees provide our young professionals with the opportunity to build skills in their desired field. It truly takes a village to accomplish amazing things, change and continue to move forward.

Events Committee

Due to the COVID - 19 Pandemic, the Hamilton Hive has taken all in person events and created a virtual experience instead. We have split our tasks and the PR committee will be handling all event preparation at this time. There is still opportunity to gain event planning skills, please apply for the PR committee for this opportunity. We are excited to get back to hosting our original three committees once the large groups restrictions have been lifted for the City of Hamilton!
