Pearson College welcomes Fellows from Jeanne Sauvé Public Leadership Program


I am delighted that Pearson College hosted 12 Fellows of the 2015-17 Jeanne Sauvé Public Leadership Program, who visited Pearson from March 4th to March 20th. The mission of the Foundation is to connect, engage and empower a new generation of public leadership in Canada and around the world to address key global challenges. The current Fellows hail from Bosnia Herzegovina, Canada, France, Israel, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Romania and the United Kingdom.

Although the Sauvé Fellows are about a decade older than Pearson students, there are many parallels between the two groups of young leaders and change makers. And not surprisingly, there are also some direct connections between Sauvé Fellows, Pearson and the UWC movement. In the summer of 2000, Public Leadership Fellows Jaspreet Khangura and Jon McPhedran Waitzer participated in the Pearson Seminar on Youth Leadership, while Brijlal Chaudhari attended United World College schools in Hong Kong and Norway as a teenager. Several of the 140 Sauvé Fellows from over 50 countries are UWC graduates.

See the profiles and information about the Fellows, or learn more about the Authentic Leadership program they brought to our Pearson students.
