SCiP 2.0

Bridging the passion of students to a purpose in community-building and strengthening.

SCiP 2.0 is the evolution of Volunteer Alberta’s renowned Serving Communities Internship Program. The original program accepted over 1000 interns across the province each year and distributed $1,000 bursaries to each intern. After SCiP’s hiatus, we are now proud to announce our latest initiative, packed with a reimagined way of offering meaningful internships.

What’s new?

To help us test out what might work and help us identify exciting innovations, we’re partnering with select organizations and institutions across the province to explore variations of internships. We are thrilled to announce our pilot sites with Big Brothers Big Sisters Edmonton and EverActive Schools. While these two pilot sites will still engage post-secondary students, the future of SCiP may look like other cohorts of interns including seniors and non-students.
