I absolutely love The Journey. It's a program which allows for teens both to learn to bond and collaborate with others, along with working on a bunch of cool personal skills – for example, public speaking and how to manage your own projects! It inspires me in what form and shape the context is given and how much fun it is to explore and learn.

My daughter has really enjoyed learning about starting a business and being a good citizen. She has learned how to use open source software and create a website which she recently used in a science project. She is learning how to make and run a budget on excel and is working to start her own business. This program is ideal for any teen that has entrepreneurial ambitions. Additionally if your a parent that homeschools your child this is a great program to learn about business and finance. I highly recommend The Journey. Jorge and Joan have made a great effort to communicate everything they are teaching and the input that the teens add to the conversation. Your teen will meet and engage with people from all over the world. What an excellent way to not only network but make friends.

I have had the most wonderful time with The Journey. I wasn't sure how it would fit into practical application and relevance for me immediately, but I have learnt so much about building a business, finance and market research that I can now see how to make my dreams a reality. I am a musician, so I thought that was primarily a creative endeavour... I now know that this is my product and the steps required to build this as a business.
Jorge leads The Journey with so much enthusiasm for the group and for what we are learning. He is super encouraging and very knowledgeable. The information is never dumbed down, yet he explains it in a way that stays interesting, not heavy and builds our knowledge in a way that is practical/ applicable so we retain it and can see how it all fits together.
I am so grateful for this experience. Both for the incredible teaching and the careful selection of people I get to learn with. This cohort has been so supportive, yet we push each other to be better. It makes me feel more capable, clear on my plan for the future and I could not recommend The Journey more highly.

My son Xavier has been part of The Journey since October 2023. The timing for us has been fantastic. Xav has a very clear idea of what he wants for his future, so being mentored as he works on his individual project at The Journey has provided a guide for him to formulate a plan and review how it is all going. The concepts could be challenging, but they are presented thoroughly and simply through the expertise and enthusiasm of Jorge, so the students willingly engage with matched interest. I am particularly impressed with the practical application of the concepts presented, the problem-solving activities they engage with, the critical thinking expected and the systematic planning that is taught. From the next room I can hear laughing as they are really enjoying the experience, I also hear debate, respectful listening and a sense of them working together. I see my son emerge after the 2.5 hour session inspired and excited by the teaching and the other students. I have recommended a number of people to The Journey as I believe this is a valuable and unique learning opportunity.

The Journey is truly life-changing. I am surprised at my son's positive changes during this short time at Journey (He went from hating to write essays to starting to write a book) and his curiosity has only increased on learning new things. I would certainly recommend for any teens who need a great mentor for creating/developing new projects.

It is going to be hard for our teenagers to graduate from The Journey. It’s been hard to even get them to leave after each two hour session. My highlight is that the program offers a solid curriculum, but all its content has been contextually challenged and acclimatized (cognitively, emotionally). The team dynamic dictates when, how and what the next challenge is going to be. Throughout each session, prior knowledge is questioned and concepts are tested. The level of trust needed, support, understanding, continuity, the fun in learning together… the Journey brings it all. Chapeau, Jorge!

outside of sessions, you may need to do research, run tests, make sales, or other tasks for your specific project. this is flexible, and completely depends on you. great results come with dedication.
some weeks will require more time, and some less. but as a general rule of thumb, the more you put in, the more you get out.
