Serving Communities Internship Program

Update: Status of the Serving Communities Internship Program (SCiP)

We regret to announce that SCiP administration funding has not been renewed for the current program year (2019/2020). We value the partnership we have with our provincial Government and we are working with them to explore future partnership opportunities for the program.

If you are currently finishing an internship or have not claimed your award for the 2018/2019 program year, you are still eligible to receive your award.

We know how important SCiP is for post-secondary students to gain valuable work experience and for nonprofits to receive more capacity to achieve their missions. This is why we are working to diversify the program’s funding.

We will continue to communicate all updates regarding the program as soon as information becomes available. You can also get updates and stay in touch by following Volunteer Alberta on Facebook and Twitter.

We know you may have questions and we’re here to answer them. Please feel free to reach out to the SCiP team for any questions or concerns you may have.
