Introducing The Skillman Visionary Awards

Let’s Talk with Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist

Our President’s Youth Council, alumni, and other young Detroit leaders met with Michigan Lieutenant Governor Garlin Gilchrist in a special, in-person Let’s Talk event moderated by President & CEO, Angelique Power. They discussed how youth of all ages can play an active role in shaping policies that directly impact their lives and communities, recognizing that the youth are the architects of our future and their potential should be nurtured by the support of adults.
