Interact is a Rotary International's service club for young people, ages 14-18. Interact is your chance to make new friends, improve your community, develop leadership skills, and make a difference in the world. Interact clubs are self-governing and financially independent, making it possible to choose and carry out service projects that you care about.
Interact clubs carry out two community service projects each year, including one that furthers international understanding and goodwill. The Interact Club of Pemberton meets on Thursdays at lunch time. For more information, email [email protected] or message us on Facebook (@pembertoninteractbc) or Instagram (@interactclubofpemberton).
Link is a group of senior students who dedicate their time to working with our middle school students (grades 8 and 9) in order to ease their transition into the secondary school, to promote connection, and to facilitate engaging learning opportunities and activities. The Link leaders connect with their groups in many different ways, but the main way is through planning for and executing a monthly meeting with their groups where they work on community building, goal setting, etc., and where they get to just have some fun. We have heard from both the participants and the Link leaders about the important impact that this group has, and the skills the leaders gain definitely help them be successful in all aspects of life.
The Diversity Group is a drop in group that meets periodically at lunch in the Counselling Room. We are a social justice group with the goal of creating a safe and inclusive environment for everyone at PSS. We organize events and awareness campaigns in order to educate our school on gender identity, sexual orientation, gender equality and the Queer and Trans community.

What is it? The PSS Indigenous Leadership Program is open to all students from grades 8-12. For grade 8 and 9 students it is an extra-curricular club. For students in grades 10-12 it is an accredited course (SD 48 Board Authorized). This program provides experiential, inclusive and community oriented learning opportunities for students to learn more about indigenous culture, language, local and national issues. The youth that participate in this program are part of a powerful movement to engage in positive change. This involves a variety of learning opportunities throughout the Sea to Sky Corridor and beyond. The class runs all year and involves weekly meetings, as well as experiences that take place both during and outside of the time table. Every year the program culminates in the 24 Hour Drum Celebration that is open to all members of the public.

Sex + Drugs = Pizza
S+D=P is a drop in lunch time program which runs intermittently through the school year, currently on Thursdays. This program is currently facilitated by Alanna Ray, registered clinical counsellor and youth clinician from Vancouver Coastal Health’s Mental health and substance use program and Stephanie Soo, PSS's Learning Support Teacher.
This program provides a safe place for educational discussions around substance use, mental health, sexual health, healthy relationships, and associated topics. At times we will have guest speakers from outside agencies to assist with the delivery of the information, such as Public Health Nurses, Tobacco/vapour product experts, or the Howe Sound Women’s Centre.
