Students have regular opportunities to interact with members, volunteers and liaise with staff to plan, implement and maintain our quality programs and services. This hands-on experience is a great way to enhance existing skills and develop new ones along the way. We have had tremendous success with our students and look forward to continuing our relationship with them. To provide a mutually beneficial experience, placements are developed to meet both the needs of the organization and the approved student’s academic requirements. Students in compatible programs from a recognized post-secondary institution (college or university) are welcome to apply.
