Together we can create opportunities for Michigan’s youth to achieve a future beyond imagination.

Program Partners

Our program partners are the boots on the ground, working with our youth every day, to support and motivate them to achieve their goals. This network of Michigan Works! agencies and school districts enable us to reach more young people throughout the state of Michigan to help them develop soft skills, deal with and overcome challenges, and set goals for future success.

Employer and Postsecondary Partners

Each year over 10,000 young people drop out of high school, limiting their chances of qualifying for Michigan’s high demand careers because 77% of the available jobs require a diploma. With over 1000 employer and postsecondary partners statewide, we involve youth in learning about available careers and help them achieve the education and experience needed to land these jobs.

Community Partners

Our programs exist to inspire and connect youth to achieve a future beyond imagination and in turn, this helps the communities in which they live, thrive. Community partners, who are individuals, organizations, and businesses, are vital to the success of the young people we serve. Let’s discuss ways you can get involved.
