THE STORY:

Too many young men of color are either unemployed, in prison, or murdered. Madonna University’s Bridging Lost Gaps (BLG) program focuses on saving young Detroit men from these negative stereotypes, tragic outcomes, and limited opportunities through college access and support. 

BLG began in 2011 as a pilot program in partnership with the Real Life 101 Fund.Today, the program receives more than 100 applications and enrolls 25 new students each year. Students like DeCarlo. Growing up in Detroit, DeCarlo has been robbed at gun point, fired upon, and seen close family members and friends incarcerated or in caskets. He was given the opportunity to change the cycle for himself and others when he received a scholarship to Madonna University. He has committed to being a positive role model and mentor to African American males in Detroit high schools. “Followers complain about the problems in life, while leaders talk about the solutions and how they can create change. I am one of those leaders.”
