There are more than fifty clubs of various sizes available, always recruiting new members and offering leadership positions. If you don’t see an existing club that catches your eye, you can start a new club! The process is quick and simple.

Clubs are a great way to meet new friends, enhance your soft skills, earn valuable resume ready experience, network, leave your mark on the BCIT community, and most importantly, have fun!


Starting a club is a simple 4 step process! If you have any questions, consult the FAQ section down below. The Club Program Coordinator is available virtually or in-person to support you through the process.

4 Steps to Starting a Club


Complete and submit the application to start a new club. Submit the completed package to the Club Program Coordinator at This will be reviewed with the VP of Student Experience.


Next, you will be invited to represent the interests of your club at a Clubs Committee meeting for a brief 5-minute presentation about your club and its general operations. Members of the Clubs Committee may ask questions to clarify the proposal of the club or request further information.


The Clubs Committee will vote on whether to recommend the club be formally sanctioned under BCIT SA. That recommendation will be communicated to the Student Council, who will vote on a motion to approve or deny the sanctioning of the club.


You will be notified of the decision by the Club Program Coordinator. If approved as a club, there will be an orientation session scheduled with the Club Program Coordinator.


How long does it take to process the application form?

After applying, it will take around one month for the sanctioning decision to be made.

What are the benefits of starting a club?

Depending on the club type, BCITSA sanctioned clubs receive benefits including free room booking at the Student Association building, access to event funding, free equipment rentals, as well as other resources. Clubs can also receive financial support for their competitions in other provinces and countries, and clubs executives can receive help from BCITSA Career Specialists regarding sponsorship advice and resume help, amongst support with other resources.

What are the three classifications of clubs on the application form?

There are three club classifications at BCITSA: General, Designated, and Casual Club

General Club: A General Club is a club that has all the rights and responsibilities of a club. A General Club shall also have full access to all club resources.

Students seeking to create a General Club shall be required to obtain and complete the applicable sections of the Club Sanctioning Form from either the Club Program Coordinator or the BCITSA website.

Casual Club: A Casual Club is less regimented and requires fewer responsibilities from its members than a General Club. Casual Clubs shall have limited access to Club Resources, and no access to funding of any kind.

Designated Club: A Designated Club bears the name of and professes the policies of a political party, religious organization, or similar. Designated Clubs shall normally have all the rights and responsibilities. Designated Clubs shall not have access to funding of any kind.

What information is needed for my club sanctioning application?

General and Designated Clubs: The Club Sanctioning Form may be altered from time to time, but at all times shall collect the following information:

i. Club Name

ii. Club Acronym or Initialism (If applicable)

iii. Which classification the proposed Club falls under

iv. Primary Contact Information of the Club

v. A list of Club Executives

vi. A list of at least 10 members who are current students

vii. A Club Constitution

Casual Clubs: The Club Sanctioning Form may be altered from time to time, but at minimum shall collect the following information from Casual Clubs:

i. Club Name

ii. Statement of Intent

iii. Primary Contact Information of the Club

iv. List of at least 5 members who are current students.

Can I switch my club’s classification after it is sanctioned?

Of course! Clubs will need to go through the sanctioning process again to obtain approval from council. Clubs may use the same application if the members on the form are still current students.

With over fifty different clubs to choose from, there’s something for everyone. Our student clubs span across many disciplines, including, but not limited to, Business, Trades, Computer Sciences, Health Sciences, and Engineering. Take a scroll through our list and see if something catches your attention.

How to Include Club Experiences in Your Resume

Including your club achievements can be an effective way to showcase your skills and abilities, especially when you don’t have much professional work experience. Understanding how clubs can enhance your resume will give you the tools to strengthen your job applications, thus setting you apart in the hiring process.

How to get started

First, identify the skills and values relevant to the employer’s needs and wants. You can do this by reviewing the job description and speaking to an industry expert in your chosen field or someone from the company you’re interested in working for. Perhaps strong communication and interpersonal skills are highlighted in the qualifications section or responsibilities section of the job post. Or you might find out from a networking session that the employer is prioritizing someone who can operate under tight schedules and manage their time well. Researching the company and the role you are applying to can help determine the type of club experience you want to highlight on your resume and how to describe it.

Which Club Experiences to Include?

Next, think about what you have done in your club and assess how these experiences have prepared you for the position you’re applying to. For instance, as a BCITSA Club Executive, you might have spent a lot of time leading, organizing, and managing logistics for groups of students. Highlighting these skills with concrete examples demonstrate to the employer you have what it takes to succeed in the workplace. Professional skills you might develop as a Club Executive may include:

  • Leadership
  • Communication
  • Initiative
  • Critical thinking
  • Teamwork & Collaboration
  • Conflict management
  • Organization
  • Decision making
  • Time management
  • Event planning

Where to Include your Club Experiences

Where you dedicate club experience on your resume depends on your role, scope and level of responsibility within the organization, how relevant it is to the job you are applying to, and if you have other experiences to showcase. Be intentional about where you place your extracurricular activities to leverage your skills and experience.


Places you could include club experiences on your resume:


  1. Experience Section: If you have dedicated a significant amount of time committed to your club responsibilities comparable to a part-time job, it may be best to include it in the experience section, especially if you developed relevant skills to the industry you’re targeting. For example, you organized multiple events and created social media posts in your school club as the VP of External Events. These achievements may demonstrate a strong match for the positions in marketing you are applying to and would be well-suited to include in your experience section.


  1. Extracurricular Activities Section: If you have been involved in multiple extracurriculars, you can dedicate an entire section to listing your extracurricular activities. This is especially beneficial if the listed activities are relevant to the role you’re applying to. Nonetheless, employers will take note of your dedication to professional development activities and your ability to take initiative and demonstrate a strong work ethic and leadership qualities.


  1. Education Section: Including a club section within your education section can be beneficial if the activity is related to your academic program and/or if you gained a certificate or training as a result. For example, if you volunteered as a BCIT Set Representative to advocate for student concerns, highlight your leadership, communication abilities, and/or conflict management under that activity.


In summary, there are various sections of your resume you can list your extracurriculars. Ask yourself these questions to help determine where they may be best suited:


  • How much time did I dedicate to the volunteer role? And did I develop transferrable skills to the role I am applying to?
  • Have I been involved in multiple volunteering roles?
  • Does my volunteer role relate to my academic program and/or did I gain a certificate?

How to List Your Club Experiences on a Resume

Regardless of where you choose to list your extracurriculars, you should present these activities like you would as work experience, by including the role/position you held, the name of the organization, and the dates/period of your participation. You also want to include bullet points with accomplishment statements that detail your responsibilities, the skills you developed and specific achievements. Check out this resource on writing accomplishment statements.

Below are resume examples to show how this looks in practice.
