THE STORY:

I participated in an internship with YouthWorks-Detroit called Detroit Summer Outreach in 2012. That summer changed me. Learned more about the Kingdom of God than I ever thought you could in 10 weeks. (If you have ever had a real life conversation with me you've probably listened to me talk about it, and maybe wished I would stop). This is probably one of the worthiest organizations I can think of for you to support. I promise, it works mainly in Detroit, not reforming those from outside like me, although it does a good job at that too. 

High school youth groups; elementary and middle school arts programs; partnerships with several other organizations in the city. YouthWorks does a lot, especially through committed relationships seeking what's best for those its working with (and not superficial targets) and it needs YOUR support to keep doing this! 

Give $10, give $100, anywhere in between, more or less.

DETROIT COMMUNITY OUTREACH wrote -

YouthWorks-Detroit was founded as a youth outreach and service internship program for college students in 1995 by two middle school teachers working in Detroit.  At school, they noticed a major deficiency in their students’ lives was a lack of committed relationships.  From fathers and family, to random changes in teachers, neighborhoods, and schools, their students experienced consistent abandonment in foundational relationships.  YouthWorks-Detroit was created to help redeem this void in the lives of Detroit youth.

YouthWorks-Detroit's mission is equipping youth for fullness of life.  For over twenty years, we have built lasting relationships with Detroit youth and families, helped restore homes and communities, and impacted young people to become catalysts for change in our city.  We provide Detroit youth with opportunities for committed relationships, academic success, leadership skills, neighborhood transformation, and character development through after-school programming, summer job programs, service-learning trips and projects, and mentoring opportunities.
