About this grant

This grant will enable the Genesee Area Focus Fund to provide education and employment opportunities in community service agencies for approximately 400 Flint area youth between the ages of 14 and 18. These teens will serve another 2,500 Flint area youth employed in summer activities. The 2007 program will continue to invest in a systemic approach to workforce development, emphasizing career preparation and promoting personal development and leadership skills for youth. In addition, the Genesee Area Focus Fund will establish a small matching fund to expand employment opportunities in the broader for-profit business community to better attract the participation of the members of the Genesee Regional Chamber of Commerce.
