In 2018 Brandon was selected to serve as the Community Project Chairperson of the Garnet Key Society. Brandon organized a number of projects across campus that sought to have a positive impact on the school and the Montreal community, including a benefit concert for the Native Women’s Shelter of Montreal. In this role, Brandon volunteered at a number of events across campus, such as convocation and official university functions. In addition, Brandon has volunteered for the Access Centre for Students with Disabilities as a peer note-taker for three semesters. More recently, began participating on the Food Advisory Working Group Committee at Concordia, a committee aimed towards implementing long-term sustainable food goals on campus.
In the summer of 2019, Brandon was appointed by the Mohawk Council of Kahnawake to serve a 3-year term as the Chairperson of the Kahnawake Cannabis Control Board, a regulatory body for the purpose of regulating, enforcing and administering the Kahnawake Cannabis Control Law. In December 2019, Brandon was selected to serve a 3-year term as a post-secondary student representative on the Kahnawake Shakotia’takehnhas Community Services (KSCS) board of directors, a governing board that oversees KSCS and its mission for a strong collective future for Kahnawake by promoting and supporting a healthy family unit.
As illustrated through Brandon’s past and present volunteer experiences, their commitment to the Concordia, Montreal and Kahnawake community are indicative of an outstanding volunteer who has a clear passion for strengthening and giving back to their community.
