Taking on a leadership role at Hamilton is a great way to learn more about yourself, educate your peers and prepare for future leadership opportunities in the workplace. Being a student leader in the COOP provides the bonus of motivating others to serve, to make contributions to the community and to become lifelong engaged citizens.
Community Outreach & Opportunity Project — COOP
The COOP seeks to make Hamilton College a consistently good neighbor to the surrounding community, offering well-trained and dedicated students the chance to serve in significant and ongoing ways. Through direct service volunteering, internships, philanthropy, awareness and fundraising initiatives, Hamilton students will make broad contributions to the well-being of the off-campus community.
