Every 26 seconds a student in America drops out of high school
1 in 4 Detroit youth will not graduate high school on time
We believe it's because of aspirations. We have failed in offering enough opportunities for our young people to truly dream, to aspire. If you don't have aspirations, you're not going to believe in yourself. If you don't have that community of people around you telling you that you can, you won't contribute.
The FATE Program
Helping young people aspire, believe, and contribute. Ultimately, helping them become world-class citizens. A world-class citizen is someone who actively engages with, learns from, and gives to, the community he/she is a part of. World-class citizens will actively participate in their society through high-level dedication to leadership, volunteerism, philanthropy, and civic engagement. They want the best for their community, and are willing to work hard, alongside others, as agents of change.
It is their FATE to become a Citizen of Merit. It is their FATE to receive sufficient resources & opportunities to graduate high school and go to college. It is their FATE to not be inferior, but on equal ground with their peers. It is their FATE to earn their 5 stripes of world-class citizenship. It is their FATE to change the world by positively affecting the people & communities around them.find out more about the Fate program
