Coffee with a Purpose
By way of taking action, “Coffee with a Purpose” was created; virtual conversations exploring a range of youth education and employment related topics with guest speakers who share our passion for Michigan’s young people. By giving youth this platform and encouraging them to use their voice for good, these productive conversations will enable us to listen, understand, and take appropriate actions to ensure an equal and great future for all of Michigan’s youth.
It’s essential to encourage youth to use their voice for good. It’s equally essential to have productive conversations where we listen, understand, and take appropriate actions to ensure an equal and great future for all of Michigan’s youth.
- From the Jobs for Michigan’s Graduates equality statement
Lifting the voice of our youth is the reason behind Coffee with a Purpose. This time of year is very busy for our youth, so we are postponing the November 16, Coffee with a Purpose, Youth Point of View: The Path to a Career Through an Apprenticeship until next year.
We thank you for your continued support of this event. It is important to the work of Youth Solutions to raise the youth voice and give them this platform to be heard. We look forward to you joining us next year as we explore this topic and new topics as well.
