Thank you for supporting Detroit's next generation of young leaders! DFA is an organization focused on youth leadership that works with local educators, chefs, and business owners to inspire young Detroiters (ages 13-24) through self-directed entrepreneurial experiences rooted in food-- experiences which open doors, create connections, and cultivate confidence.
From cooking delicious healthy meals to facilitating complex conversations to creating food-based experiences, students learn by transforming their ideas into reality. Through this process, they grow as holistic leaders who are healthy, connected, and powerful to affect change within and beyond the local food system. Students leave our program as entrepreneurial thinkers confident in their own power, conscious of the food system, familiar with business principles, and connected to networks of mentorship and support. With your help, we can bring the DFA experience to more Detroit high schoolers than ever before!
