What do past participants say about PSYL?
"I saw YouTube videos of past PSYL participants and they said it was life- changing and I was sitting at home thinking... how? Now, after attending PSYL, I realize how. This has been a truly life-changing experience in all aspects of my life (both personal and in terms of the way I look at the world around me) and has surely exceeded my expectations!"-Past Participant
"I feel that I have grown immensely as a person as a result of this program. I am braver, more likely to stand up for myself or others, more educated about issues affecting our world, more compassionate, and just ... more. More a person, more someone who is in love with this program, more someone who is in love with people and life itself."-Past Participant
"PSYL has truly changed my view on the world. It has given me the opportunity to realize that there is hope in the world and that if I want to better an aspect of my life, that it is possible to do so. Thank you for the best experience of my life."-Past Participant
"Thank you so much for this opportunity - from meeting amazing individuals to finding myself, I feel as if I am ready to be the change."-Past Participant
"PSYL was one of the best months of my life. I have learned more about myself and the world I live in than I ever had. I would LOVE to come back as a facilitator next year because I think that another month at PSYL for anyone would be so beneficial."-Past Participant
"At first, I was very hesitant to come. I knew no one coming here, and for me, I was really going out of my comfort zone. As I began the program, I started to meet new and exciting people who were passionate about the world. I am very sad to leave, but I am honored to have had the privilege of coming here!"-Past Participant
"I just wanted to tell you how amazing PSYL was for me this summer. I still think about the fantastic experiences I had there everyday. I still find it absolutely insane how three weeks can change absolutely everything. It's amazing how in three weeks, I was able to learn SO much about myself in others and how I took away lessons that some people never learn throughout their lives. My school and PSYL are extremely different and after PSYL, I was a bit nervous coming back because I thought I'd look at my friends very differently. But nothing bad happened coming back. My attitude changed ... not my friends. I was able to find the good in the people I knew, and try to branch out to meet new people. One of the most important things PSYL taught me was to have an open mind about everything. I want to thank you so much. PSYL changed me so much and I like who I am now so much more. "-Past Participant
