Our Youth Council Directed $200k to These Detroit Nonprofits

Celebrating International Youth Day

It’s International Youth Day – a day that highlights the essential role of youth as leaders in today’s global society. We can learn boundless lessons from youth if we pause and listen.

To celebrate (and demonstrate), we are sharing some never before seen footage of our very own team member, Terry Whitfield, learning how to ride a horse from three experts and Detroit Horse Power youth council members – Mya, Le’Airra, and Kaira!

What can you learn from the young people in your life? Start a conversation with them today!

The Skillman Foundation

The Skillman Foundation is a grantmaking organization established in 1960 by Rose Skillman. We have granted out more than $730 million and have served as a vocal advocate to strengthen K-12 education, afterschool programming, child-centered neighborhoods, youth and community leadership, and racial equity and justice.

We are in the process of developing a new strategic framework, co-designed with Detroit youth and their champions.
