This renewal grant provides support to Mott Community College for the Teen Creating Economic Opportunity Initiative, which offers a seven-week entrepreneurial learning and leadership experience for 45 disadvantaged youth between the ages of 14-18. The objectives of the program are to: 1) provide participants with the competencies needed to operate a business, including business plan development; 2) offer youth additional skill-building opportunities through mentorships and job shadowing; 3) help students develop a Higher Education Career Pathway plan; and 4) pilot a special program track dedicated to encouraging entrepreneurship around applied technology and manufacturing. Upon completion, fifteen participants will be eligible to receive $1,000 of venture capital seed money to launch their enterprise.
This grant will enable the staff of Mott Middle/Early College High School to continue its replication and research efforts. As an early adapter of the middle/early college high school model, Mott Community College is entering into its 27th year of exploration, implementation, and research of this blended secondary and postsecondary design. Through a partnership with the Michigan Department of Education, Mott Middle/Early College High School administrative staff will direct the Center for Middle and Early Colleges, which provides technical assistance for 45 middle/early college high schools in Michigan and operates as a hub for national dissemination of progress in the development of middle and early colleges.
The Mott Foundation, through its four grantmaking programs, funds a variety of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and projects throughout the United States, which together receive about three quarters of the Foundation’s grant funds each year.
