About this grant

This grant will provide continued support to the Genesee Area Focus Fund’s Summer Youth Program, created to develop and implement summer programs that provide education and employment opportunities for Flint area youth age 14-18. Every year since 1997, the program has made it possible for as many as 30 agencies to offer programs to provide jobs and improve the job skills of Flint area youth. Funding will enable the program to emphasize a systemic approach to workforce development, starting with career preparation and educational development plans for each participant; establishing stronger partnerships with area employers; building understanding of, and support for, community service; and providing leadership training to connect participants with future leadership development opportunities in the community.
