Everyone seems to be wondering “What will summer employment be like this year?”
Last summer, our Youth Council worked in We Built This! – a construction program that allowed youth to design and build woodwork projects for the Cody Rouge and Warrendale communities—and The Youth Urbanism Summit—a program where young people from Cody Rouge and Warrendale became youth urbanists for the summer and planned a community youth summit.
This year, we are dedicated to giving Cody Rouge youth the same kinds of enriching experiences in the summer. The circumstances around social distancing have presented us with a unique opportunity to develop employment experiences that allow youth to work from their homes while learning new valuable skills.
More details about summer employment are to come, but for now please register for the Grow Detroit’s Young Talent summer job program at GDYT.org and use our referral code C1021. The program is open to young people ages 14-24 who reside in the city of Detroit.
