Cherry Tam

fraser valley facilitator

Hello! I’m Cherry. I love working on the Youth Program team because I am driven by a desire to make an impact on the world, no matter how small, and by the connections I make with others. Outside of work, I love learning new languages (Japanese, ASL, French, & Mandarin in particular) because I’m fascinated by how languages shape our worldviews!

Lindsay Sackett

north-central bc facilitator

I can be described as somehow both laid-back and in a constant state of chaos. I’m a lover of the outdoors, music, & learning, and I’m always up for an adventure. I love to spend my free time enjoying the traditional territory of the Ktunaxa First Nation with my partner and my pup Nova, cooking plant-based meals, relaxing with my cat Milo, and trying to make zero-waste living more accessible for others. My facilitation style is informal yet productive, and I always aim to create a fun and safe space for everyone involved!!


Brock Endean

Thompson facilitator

Weytk! My name is Brock and I was born, raised, and currently reside in Secwepemcul’ecw, though I have had many great opportunities to experience the landscapes, wildlife, and communities that make this part of the world so amazing! I learned at a young age how much influence our community and those closest to us have in shaping our view of not only the world but also of ourselves. I chose to surround myself with supportive people, follow my interests and curiosities, and actively participate in my community. Now, through my work as a facilitator, I focus on developing deeper conversations about values, fulfillment, leadership responsibility, and strengthening connections to empower individuals and communities.


Dani Stancer

cowichan valley facilitator

Dani works for the Cowichan Green Community Society. She is interested in all things outdoors and the environment (snowboarding, hiking, camping, reading environmental and social theory, or tending to her plants in her free time). She spent the last six years living, working, and studying in Vancouver, and has a background in sociology, human geography, and international development. She is very new to Vancouver Island, only moving there at the beginning of September 2021. She’s passionate about sustainability, food security, and rural development.

May Wolff

VUC creative facilitation support

Hi! My name is May, my pronouns are She/Her! I’m Gitxsan First Nation and 2nd generation removed from residential schools. I grew up on the ancestral unseeded territories of the the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, sḵwx̱wú7mesh, and səlilwətaɬ. I’m very passionate about taking care of my community and my spirit! As an indigenous person, I try my best to give back to the land as much as I can.  I have so much love for the arts and baked goods! Blueberry cheesecake is my favourite sweet treat and my favourite song is Everybody’s Talkin by Harry Nilsson.

Sybil Zhang

school and education lead

Hi there! This is Sybil. An Aries, ENFP, with the Chinese zodiac sign of Monkey. Well…that already says a lot about my personality! I moved to Canada in my teenage years and have been in love with the people, culture, and natural scenery ever since. Love diving into the calming wilds but also enjoy hanging out with lively homo sapiens. I resonant with the English word sonder, realizing that everything has its own path, and having the opportunity to make an impact on any of those is truly a profound experience.

Kenthen Thomas

shushwap-north okanagan facilitator

As a First Nations performer, Kenthen captivates audiences with his fascinating retellings of legends of the Secwepemc, his family land for more than 10,000 years.
