Join us at PSYL
We are grateful that we can gather, live and learn in the inspired setting of Vancouver Island, on the unceded territory of the Scia’new First Nation. At PSYL we learn on the shores of the Salish Sea, and amid British Columbia’s spectacular old-growth forests. We explore the ways in which this place is shaped both by global forces and its unique history, and the diverse forms of leadership required to move the needle towards justice and equity in this context.
12 July – 1 August, 2020

Reading Time: 4 minutes Past PSYL participant pursues a UWC education and returns to the summer program two years later to inspire a new generation on the Pearson campus.
Reading Time: 3 minutes Do you remember Abbey Christ-Rowling, one of our host family volunteer members? And that’s absolutely not all she is: This extraordinary young woman made her dream of going to a UWC come true last January. We recently chatted with her about her first year at UWC Waterford Kamhlaba.
Reading Time: 4 minutes The question was fairly simple, not to mention obvious. Why are you, Kacey (Katherine) Wilson, spending time on the Pearson campus this summer? But the answer was delightful — and spoke volumes about the cross-pollination of ideas and the commitment to student health and wellness that benefits all 17 UWC schools around the world.
