    Glenda Fraser, PEP Participant 2015

    "I appreciated so much my opportunity to come to PEP. I was more than amazed by the program. it was such a privilege being amongst so many volunteers and being in an environment where our only purpose was to bring the best out of and acknowledge the best in everyone. I found the universality of the power of good alive and well at PEP, where true and enduring values were the overwhelming theme, and much love and acceptance was generated,
    It was a powerful experience, one I hope never to forget.

    Thank you PEP and WYI. - Glenda Fraser, PEP Participant 2015"

    Caitlin Murphy, Past Participant 2011

    "PEP was a powerful force: a process of waking up and returning to authentic connections. It was a meeting of so many incredible people with energy and drive that kick-started an inner fire in many of us. There was such openness and potential in everyone, and a creative element to the program that was very special. read more
