Our programs address three areas of need: • Youth development • Entrepreneurship • Community service & collaboration
We incorporate ideas from more established youth organizations, as well as design our own to meet the specific needs of Detroit youth. We address poverty and inequality and open doors of opportunity to all youth. And we serve younger children through our youth-led arts and crafts and coloring pages.
Though we are a 501c3 nonprofit, we are agile, creative, entrepreneurial and generous This means our programs shift and grow regularly. Currently, they consist of Learn & Earn, summer jobs, Paint Detroit with Generosity, Art in Windows and our newest: Mint creative services.
