THE STORY:

Funds raised by this fundraiser will support Detroit youth -- through the renovation of a brand new FATE 2.0 facility and the continued build-out of our expanded education enrichment and mentorship program.

Since 2012, Give Merit's FATE program has engaged Detroit high school students in an innovative program design, which provides students with the exposure and motivation needed to excel in school, remain on track for graduation, and transition into higher education. This has been accomplished by blending project-based learning, mentoring, leadership development and college readiness workshops held on a monthly basis in partnership with regional industry leaders, entrepreneurs, and volunteer mentors.

Pursuing higher education is an integral shared aspiration for all FATE students. To incentivize their educational pursuits, each FATE student who maintains the standards of the program during the 4-year timeframe, graduates from high school, and is accepted into a college or university receives a $5,000 scholarship towards their education. As the inaugural class of participating students transition to college, FATE is currently preparing for an expanded program model of service delivery in a newly renovated facility - FATE 2.0.

Beginning Fall 2016, FATE will select a new cohort of 25 ninth graders to participate in a weekly, after-school program in a newly renovated facility over four years. Each year, an additional group of ninth grade students will enroll as participants, leading to approximately 100 Detroit youth supported by FATE by Fall 2019. Students will spend 2-3 hours a week on location at the new facility working toward one capstone project while learning technical skills across a range of topics. The new facility will house FATE’s Youth Development and Workforce Training Center where various community partners will expose students to the skills needed to succeed in high school and compete in various careers.
