In this video slideshow, two young community leaders with the Detroit-based Harriett Tubman Center – a Mott grantee – share their thoughts about engaging area residents in creating sustainable community improvements.
Nurtured through service to community, leadership is one of the After-School All-Stars’ (ASAS) four national programming priorities, which also include academic and homework support; visual and performing arts activities; and health, nutrition and physical fitness instruction.
For 17 summers, the Mott Foundation has supported a jobs program linking Flint and Genesee County teens with a productive work experience. This year, a grant of $825,000 to the Genesee Area Focus Fund will enable more than 400 young people to prepare for and connect with job opportunities.
Focus: HOPE has worked to fuel positive social and economic change in Detroit since 1968. Mott recently made a $750,000 grant to the organization.
