Youth Power

We see young people as the change agents we need and we’re moving our dollars and influence behind their ability to shape a more equitable future for us all. Detroit youth should have a voice in their schools, communities, and world.

Our President’s Youth Council

The insights of Detroit youth guide our priorities and strategies. While we solicit youth input in many ways, our Youth Council is a formal structure to do so. The Council meets regularly with the Foundation to discuss issues that are important to them and advise us on how we can better support their needs and aspirations. They also direct their own grantmaking budgets.
