Ryan Juskus, HNGR Assistant Director
Ryan joined the HNGR Program in the summer of 2008. A graduate of Wheaton College and alumnus of the HNGR Program, Ryan serves HNGR through the facilitation of internship placements, student mentoring, and networking with global partner (or "host") organizations. Prior to the HNGR Program, Ryan worked in local community development and housing advocacy in Washington, DC. He and his wife, Kendra, are thankful for the opportunity to walk alongside students with whom they share a similar journey. Ryan's vision is to cultivate whole persons who connect their experiences of life with the poor to their faith, vocational choices, and long-term goals. He desires to see HNGR students develop relationships with those who are different from them -- culturally, racially, economically -- in ways that build true and healthy interdependence.
