Dear SSEP Supervisors, Funders, and Students,
It is with great sadness and disappointment that we inform you of our decision to cancel the WISE NL Student Summer Employment Program for summer 2020.
This was not a decision taken lightly. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic, WISE NL is unable to guarantee confidently the safety of students and staff, nor are we able to predict accurately how the situation will evolve into the spring and summer months. Due to this uncertainty and after a great deal of discussion between the SSEP team and the Board of Directors, we decided to cancel the summer 2020 Student Summer Employment Program. It is our intent to resume SSEP in the summer of 2021 and we will redirect our attention accordingly.
All student and supervisor applications received to date for the summer 2020 program will be kept on file for 2021 and the SSEP team is investigating the possibility of including the 2020 Grade 11s in the 2021 program. Additionally, the SSEP team will be contacting program sponsors directly.
WISE NL thanks you for your continued support and interest in SSEP. We hope that we can continue our valued relationship for SSEP 2021.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Program Administrator, Clare Lewis, at
(709) 631-1897 or by email at email@example.com, or our SSEP Director, Kelsey Howlett via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
