Madelyn is passionate about inter-generational learning and encouraging adults to learn just as much from youth as youth does from them. She believes that a true education never really ends and that fostering a daily sense of wonder can do great things. She is ecstatic to be part of Youth Climate Corps and support this cause.
Prior to her current roles, Madelyn spent 6 years working as Mate aboard ecotourism sailboats, leading adults and youth alike into British Columbia’s wilderness. From the West Coast of Haida Gwaii up into the fiords of the Great Bear Rainforest, Madelyn embraces the complexity of the world we live in and the challenges of understanding it.
Madelyn has a BA in Environment and Sustainability from the University of British Columbia, a B.Ed. in Secondary Science with a minor in Environmental Education from Simon Fraser University and is set for convocation for her M.Sc. in 2023 from Royal Roads University.
