Yeelen Merhi

Yeelen joined the SPES team in the early spring of 2017. He has a BEd and a BGS from SFU and has worked with children for most of his life. Yeelen returned to Vancouver in the early spring of 2017 in order to move into practicing outdoors after working in inner city schools in east London, UK. His experience with students in a concrete jungle solidified his belief that many young students are experiencing a disconnect between their education and the environment. He believes that providing students with a positive experience in nature will help to shape environmentally conscious individuals. When he’s not at work, you might find Yeelen cycling, hiking, canoeing and camping around our beautiful province.
