Let’s Talk: School in 2021 & Beyond

Detroit students talk about what’s most important for the future of school.

Lamont Satchel, Jr. (class of 2021 Detroit graduate) moderated a conversation with Mathias Neloms (middle school student) and Mosammad Jahan and Willyne Smith (rising seniors), members of our President’s Youth Council.

They discussed what’s worked and where change is needed, helping school and community leaders reimagine school.  

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.
