“This initiative is beautifully simple in its design- very cohesive-and brings together so many life skills in its execution. It is compact and neat in that way and so very real life. We get a daily onslaught of bad news in the city and it usually leads to the same handwringing and despair. This initiative brings youth and adults together to learn and work together-to act. To build relationships and a boat at the same time, learning a whole lot along the way.”

~ Ann Brummitt, Co-Director, Milwaukee Water Commons Project
