About this grant
This grant will enable the county of Saginaw to continue implementing the Earn & Learn Initiative in Saginaw County, targeting disconnected youth (18-24), formerly incarcerated prisoners, and chronically unemployed individuals that want to reenter the workforce. The initiative is designed to spark immediate entry-level work opportunities while simultaneously increasing workers’ skills and helping them manage barriers to success. The grantee will work with local service providers, training and education partners, and employers to implement this initiative. The Mott Foundation’s support for the Earn & Learn Initiative will be matched 1:1 by the Open Society Foundations and the state of Michigan.
