About this grant

This grant will enable the County of Saginaw to implement the Earn & Learn Initiative, targeting up to 90 disconnected youth (18-24), young minority males (including former prisoners reentering the workforce), and chronically unemployed adults in the Saginaw area. The initiative is designed to spark immediate, entry-level work opportunities, while simultaneously increasing workers’ skills and helping them manage barriers to success. The Mott Foundation’s investment in the Earn & Learn Initiative will be matched 1:1 by both the Open Society Institute and the state of Michigan.
