About this grant
This grant provides support to the Genesee Area Focus Fund to implement TeenQuest and the Summer Youth Initiative, which provide job training and employment opportunities for Genesee County teens in partnership with area employers. Teens participate in TeenQuest, a pre-employment training program, and are then eligible to apply for employment through the Summer Youth Initiative. Programs like these are particularly important as Flint continues to respond to the water crisis because educational and enrichment opportunities are crucial interventions for children and teens to help mitigate potential long-term impacts of lead exposure.
