Jenny Ferris writes: “Of all the volunteer endeavours I have participated in, ILC has been the one I believe is the most useful to youth.” Jenny F erris a Kayak Guide, Nature Interpreter, Photographer,  Artist and teacher of English and Outdoor Pursuits at Shawnigan Lake School, Vancouver Island, BC.  Jenny recently applied her Inclusive Leadership skills to volunteering with Low Tide Day (May 17, 2014). She brought together a diverse group of people to help clean up Cowichan Bay by Kayak. Jenny can be reached by cell phone:  (250) 246-8813

Elke Cole writes: At this time I’m still moving around between Africa and Europe- hopefully practicing what I learned (through Inclusive Leadership).”  Elke travels the world supporting positive change through Natural Design, Natural Building, and inclusive community-building workshops based on curiosity and appreciation for the gifts each person brings.

Brandy Gallagher writes: “I congratulate the ILC on becoming a Community Service Co-operative.”  Brandy is the visionary founder of O.U.R. Ecovillage; a sustainable learning community and demonstration site based on permaculture principles. Brandy and many others at OUR Ecovillage have worked in partnership with Inclusive Leadership to host Inclusive Leadership Adventures, Youth Convergences and Canada World Youth education sessions. Our Ecovillage is our venue for our August 2014 Inclusive Leadership Co-operative gathering. Brandy and OUR Ecovillage are in the midst of a critical time of transition in which sharing leadership is the priority. For more information click here  O.U.R. Ecovillage;
