Committees & Volunteering
Havergal College values its Old Girls involvement. Bring your experiences and professional expertise and support the work of our HOGA committees. Whether you are a recent graduate looking to build upon your professional network, or a seasoned professional seeking new experiences, there is a HOGA Committee for you!
Old Girls who volunteer for Havergal not only help others, but also themselves, through stronger personal and professional networks, résumé-building and life-enhancing experiences.
Take the first step and get in touch!
Annual Events Committee
Coordinates the annual event activities of Old Girls, including the Grandchildren’s Party, the Old Girls Annual Dinner, Cinquantenaire and Stoneager Luncheon and the Stoneagers Tea.
Coordinates and continually develops this annual Old Girls publication. It develops a theme and co-ordinates the publication pages with the support of the Office of Advancement & Community Relations. The Chronicle is considered the single most important vehicle by which Old Girls receive news of other Old Girls.
Class Rep/Reunion Committee
Organizes a dynamic reunion program for Old Girls, held every fall in Toronto, and maintains a vital Class Rep program that links every Old Girl to the school and classmates. We are looking for volunteers both near and far who would be interested in sitting on this committee or volunteering for events organized by the committee, including Reunion Weekend activities – Old Girls Welcome Desk and the Reunion Cocktail Party.
Community Events Committee
Co-ordinates the personal and professional development workshops, with the support of student and staff representatives. The goal is to provide an educational and entertaining evening on a subject relevant to the Havergal Community. Where possible, Old Girls are featured speakers.
Monitors and facilitates the healthy development and operation of the Directorate, its sub-committees, and individual committee members.
Havergal Mentoring Committee
Coordinates year-long partnerships between Old Girls in their chosen profession – from reviewing applications of prospective mentees and mentors, organizing the annual kick-off ‘Meet & Greet’ in February or following up with the current participants in the program.
