What have past interns and summer students said about SCI BC?
“My first co-op role was for Spinal Cord Injury BC which is a provincial non-profit. That was a job where I felt like I did not go to work, I went there and enjoyed what I did so much every day, that there was no way I could label it as a job. It was just a great time and you helped out so many people. I got to be creative and plan events but then also have more technical components of managing a budget. I definitely see myself going back to a nonprofit role, long term.” – Gazal
“Working at a non-profit organization gave me the opportunity to use my knowledge and skills in a meaningful way. The community at SCI BC is welcoming, friendly, encouraging, and inclusive. The organization trusted me to manage and complete a variety of important tasks from day one. I was given the freedom to execute many different jobs, and I was able to see events through inception to completion which I found very rewarding. The skills I learned and the connections I made at SCI BC are invaluable. I would recommend this internship to anyone who is interested in working in an energetic and innovative environment.” –Gill
“[Working at SCI BC] was a tremendous opportunity as a student to gain hands-on experience from such a unique and encouraging group of individuals every single day.” –Michelle
