In our 2017 Yearbook we highlight stories about our focus on investing in our youth.
When we think of youth, we think of dreams, innovation, and new opportunities — or, simply put, the future. The youth of today will become the leaders, entrepreneurs, parents, and teachers of tomorrow. When given the opportunity to do so, young people turn their energy and creativity toward solving today’s challenges and tomorrow’s problems. The Community Foundation is leading the way in helping southeast Michigan’s children and young adults achieve their goals in academics and extracurricular activities. The Community Foundation is proud to provide support to numerous organizations focused on youth sports and after-school enrichment classes in the arts and humanities. Investing in the youth of southeast Michigan ensures a legacy all residents wish to see; an investment in our youth is an investment in the region’s future.
