Acadia Co-op Brief for EmployersDownload (327.4 KiB)
"We've been involved with the Co-operative Education Program at Acadia University for a number of years. In the beginning we saw this as an opportunity to provide leadership and guidance to students in an office environment and as a chance to give back to the community. Since being involved in the program we've come to realize that the students have been the ones providing the opportunity. Their education, skills sets and enthusiasm have created a real sense of energy in the office. Our students have become so integrated into our culture we're not certain if we could maintain operations without them. We would recommend this program to any organization interested in utilizing talented energetic youth."
