Careers

Program Coordinators and Program Animators

Each summer, PSYL looks to hire a coordination team that embodies different styles of leadership and brings together diverse experiences in the fields of youth leadership education, social and environmental justice, and community change-making. We invite applications from individuals who are passionate about intercultural learning, transformative pedagogy and stepping outside of their own comfort zones.

Animators

The animator team is comprised of students from the international UWC network, as well as past PSYL participants. The Animators have integrated and participatory roles within PSYL. We place high expectations on the animators to model inclusive community and to positively encourage participant learning. We also support Animators' learning to grow their own skills and to step into new positions of leadership. While PSYL cannot provide travel funds for Animators, they will incur no expenses once they arrive on our campus: we provide full accommodation, all meals and program materials. As well, Animators are asked to commit to the full program, including a training week prior to participant arrival. The dates for animators are July 10th to August 5th.
