About this grant

This grant will enable Michigan’s Children to continue its intermediary efforts in the Improving Outcomes for Out-of-School Youth in Michigan project. As the statewide intermediary for this project, Michigan’s Children has been central in launching and spearheading this initiative from identifying the four communities participating in this project — Detroit, Flint, Grand Rapids, and Kalamazoo — to raising awareness on the need to ensure that out of-school youth have a chance to earn a diploma. Recommended support will allow the grantee to assist participating sites in the project to develop strategies and plans to move policy and practice in a direction to improve outcomes for out-of-school youth in their communities.
