Dawn Barnett, Co-Executive Director for Running Rebels Community Organization (RRCO), is a poet, musician and singer/songwriter who works to provide services to Milwaukee’s youth and families.
Ryan Graham worked as an intern at Teens Grow Greens in 2015. Upon graduation from the program, he was invited to continue his involvement as an education coordinator and as a member of the Board of Directors. He will graduate from Carmen High School of Science and Technology, Northwest in 2017, and has recently received a scholarship for his work.
Charlie Uihlein founded Teens Grow Greens after a summer experience teaching experiential education in nature, which showed him how students could become self-directed and aware through being put in the driver’s seat. Shortly after that experience, Charlie and his wife created Teens Grow Greens, which he describes as what he was meant to do.
Solana Patterson Ramos was born, raised, and attended college in Milwaukee, WI, where she studied Community Engagement and Education, focusing on race relations and cultures. She has served on the boards of multiple national and local organizations. She currently works as a youth and programs organizer for the ACLU of Wisconsin.
Sarah Kubetz believes that schools should be places where teachers love to teach and students love to learn. In her role as community service/service-learning mentor for Milwaukee Public Schools, she works to make that belief a reality. Through investigation, planning, reflection, and youth-led action, students join with community partners to solve problems and make things better in their schools, their neighborhoods, and around the world. In the process they master valuable 21st century skills and global competencies.
