NEW CITY KIDS: DETROIT WILL LAUNCH SEPTEMBER 2020

Detroit is a city full of challenges and full of hope for a better future. The city has gone through a great decline and in recent years a resurgence, yet often the youth of the city have been overlooked. We are excited to see the next generation of leaders rise up and rebuild this city as we launch New City Kids Detroit this year.

THE NEED

Only 14.6% of Detroiters age 25+ hold a bachelor's degree

Over 50% of children in Detroit are living in poverty

15% of Detroit Public School Students are reading at grade level

GET INVOLVED

New City Kids will bring the powerful model of transformation to serve the youth in Detroit. Currently, New City Kids is learning from community leaders and those on the ground in the city about how best to come alongside and support existing efforts.
