College & Career Pathways – Our Approach

Through this approach we aim to enhance in-school and out-of-school supports, particularly for students in grades 6-12, that provide youth with the inspiration and know-how to pursue postsecondary education and/or career options. We aim to help build a comprehensive and connected system of supports that engage young Detroiters in experiences that embolden them to dream big and equip them with the tools they need to reach their ideal future.

College & Career Pathways are one of three approaches we’re taking to expand prosperity for Detroit youth. Read about our other two approaches: Financial Empowerment and Youth Employment.

The Skillman Foundation

A voice for children since 1960, The Skillman Foundation is a private philanthropy that serves as a fierce champion of Detroit children. The Foundation works to ensure Detroit youth achieve their highest aspirations by strengthening K-12 public education, afterschool learning opportunities, and college and career pathways.
