Serving Communities Internship Program

SCiP Wait Times

Even though the 2018/2019 program year has closed to new internship submissions, the team at VA is still committed to supporting you during your in-progress internships!

At this time, we are busier than usual due to staffing and training. We understand that participating in SCiP is important to you which is why we will do our best to respond to you in a timely manner. Specifically, we will respond to:


  • All proof of enrolment submissions and award requests from students within five to ten business days.
  • Any general voicemails or emails within five business days.


We appreciate your patience and your participation in SCiP. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at

SCiP 2019/2020

The opening of the 2019/2020 SCiP program year has been delayed and we have no further details to provide you at this time. We understand the difficulty this may cause program participants and we will provide updates here as soon they become available. Email updates will also be sent out to existing SCiP participants when we are provided with more information. Updates will also be provided via Volunteer Alberta’s Twitter account (@VolunteerAB).

If you have any questions, please contact

Please note: This does not affect any in-progress internships from the 2018/2019 program year.
