“One of my first ever supervisors told me I needed to expand my horizons. It wasn’t that he didn’t want me there, but he saw I had more potential and needed to branch out to reach it. I took a calculated risk and took an apprenticeship for Land Between the Lakes. The amount of training I received was diverse and immense. It wasn’t about the money it was about the experience. That is what paved the way for me to get where I am today.” Career advice from Guy Smith, Chief of Operations at Milwaukee County Parks @mkecountyparks #milwaukee #careerpath #lunchandlearn #peopleofjourneyhouse

“Food to me is a universal connector, it brings people together regardless of what sort of background you have or where you come from. The kind of food you eat makes such a difference in your health, your livelihood, how you feel, how you act, and what you are able to achieve in life. So to me, food is really important. With that, how food is grown and how it gets to you is also important so being involved in knowing how to grow food I think is a universally beneficial experience.” -Ryan Schone (Food Systems Coordinator)

“We put the addition on with the intent that in the future, we would connect to Longfellow Elementary when Journey House raised enough money and ultimately that’s what we did. Part of the Journey House addition was to build a gymnasium, new cafeteria, and kitchen that they would both share. I was the lead architect back then and I was introduced to Journey House. Michele then asked me to be on the board and I agreed to do that. I have been with them ever since, about 13 or 14 years.” -John Miceli (Retired Eppstein Uhen Architect, JH Board member, Chair of JH Campus Housing)

“I like coming to school and interacting with my students and I also like the fact that we are able to find programs that will benefit the people in this community. I like the people that I work with and the fact that it’s not the same everyday. Everyday is a little bit different and you know, I like the fact that we’ve been here for a long time and I can’t tell you the number of times that somebody will walk through the door and say ‘Oh my gosh, I was there ten years ago!’ and we are still here. I like the people and I like helping as much as I can.” -Glorianne (Director of Adult Education) #journeyhousemonday

"What I want to see in my community back home is to see it peaceful, because we never had that even before we had the genocide. Also, an economically important Rwanda and that means my vision specifically now is to see how I will support the different vulnerable communities to grow, to be economic giants, to be better communities as far  as well-being is concerned. Focusing on specifically women and youth economic empowerment for me is the goal because they have been left behind so much in policy-making and decision making so there is a lot of work that has been done around that but I still believe we have a long way to go." -Rogers (Community Solutions Fellow from Kigali, Rwanda)
