Detroit Youth Employment Consortium

This collaborative is working to expand employment experiences for young people, ages 14-21 in Detroit.

Since 2009, City Connect Detroit has co-chaired and staffed this collaborative and managed summer employment programs on behalf of the DYEC.

Programs managed on behalf of this collaborative include a Summer Youth Employment Program and the Grow Detroit’s Young Talent program, the later of which has raised more than $10 million and helped more than 7,000 young people find summer work experiences in Detroit.

The collaborative is now preparing for the 2015 iteration of the Grow Detroit’s Young Talent program.
