Youth Development

Our vision is to have youth involvement in neighborhood revitalization and decision-making.

One of our core programs is the Cody Rouge Youth Council, which has been actively working in the community since 2007 to make it a better place to live for young people.

The Cody Rouge Youth Council (CRYC) consists of young people ages 12-18 that live, work, worship or attend school in the Cody Rouge community, and have a genuine interest in making a difference in Detroit. 


Youth Council members actively participate in community service projects and planning youth and community events for the Cody Rouge neighborhood. Members also gain college/career preparation and have opportunities to engage in leadership training, participate in the legislative process, and work paid summer internships. 

CRYC's mission is to advise community leaders of the unique youth perspective and work together on neighborhood concerns and solutions.
