High Risk Youth Workforce Development Collaborative

This collaborative brings together five Wayne County human service agencies and the University of Michigan to plan, implement, and evaluate a demonstration program designed to help young people in the child welfare or juvenile justice system secure and retain employment. City Connect Detroit has facilitated this collaboration since its inception in early 2011 and will serve as the project’s fiscal sponsor when it launches in 2012. The collaborative is now preparing to implement its fundraising plan, which has been in development throughout the second half of 2011.
