About this grant
This grant will enable Career Alliance, Inc., to implement the Earn & Learn Initiative in Flint and Genesee County, targeting 264 disconnected youth (18-24), young minority males (including former prisoners reentering the workforce), and chronically unemployed adults. 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 one-to-one by both the Open Society Institute and the state of Michigan.
