President’s Youth Council
The insights of Detroit youth guide our priorities and strategies. While we solicit youth input in many ways, our President’s Youth Council is a formal structure to do so. Our President’s Youth Council meets regularly with Foundation leadership to discuss issues that are important to them and advise how the Foundation and its partners can better support their needs and aspirations.
The Council meets with Foundation leadership two-to-three times per calendar year, in addition to other engagements and discussions. Terms last for two years. Council members are compensated for their time and are reimbursed for any transportation expenses incurred during their service to the Foundation.
