To build our community we offer internship and volunteer opportunities. Come explore!

INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

Currently our internship opportunities are only open to Brazilian exchange students in Canada who are participating in the Science Without Borders (SwB) program, whose study is in the arena of engineering, mathematics, or computer science. Keep an eye on this page for future opportunities. We are always looking.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Come and explore our volunteer opportunities that allow you to meet others and be part of our network of cross-disciplinary industry leaders.

Volunteer opportunities provide opportunities that open doors and get in on the action. We are pleased to offer a volunteer program that will do just such. We offer opportunities in the creation, production, and administration aspects of our courses, and our applications.

Your contributions help build our community, and how that is done is based on your desired commitment, your working style, and area of focus.
