We believe in the future of Detroit and Detroit children.

We are committed to a 20 year vision – dramatically changing the odds for Detroit youth by ensuring they have exceptional learning and developmental opportunities, both inside and outside the classroom.

Detroit is reviving, once again becoming a place of promise. For this momentum to continue, we must support and provide opportunities to its next generation of leaders – Detroit children.

However, kids today are face with more barriers than opportunities.


  • Kids living in concentrated poverty. 80%
  • 4th graders not proficient in reading. 71%
  • Children in Detroit attending charter schools. 33%

We believe in the future of DETROIT and Detroit CHILDREN.

The status quo for children in Detroit is unacceptable. Our city will not prosper until the kids that call it home are prepared to compete and win in the global marketplace. Right now, most of our kids don’t have the skills to even be in the game – let alone win.

Every child deserves a quality education. With your help, we can make good schools the norm for Detroit kids.
