We received our 501c3 designation on October 26, 2011, marking this past October as our 10th birthday. I feel exceedingly fortunate to be doing this work at this time with these particular young people in the amazing City of Detroit. And I feel immensely proud that we have reached this milestone.
Thank you to all those folks who believed in two “basically kids themselves” in their 20s with a huge vision, a lot of drive, and no proving ground. You helped us get here today.
We are currently working with approximately 150 HS-and-college-age students.
We have HS students who are finding their voice, coming out of their shells, and finding a safe home in the FATE program.
We have alumni who are pursuing their dreams by starting their own businesses, attending college, graduating college, becoming trade-certified, earning salaries WITH benefits, buying homes, and so much more.
We have provided over $200,000 in college scholarships
We are a lean, mean team of 8 led by a Board of 13.
We are not done.
But, we've still got more work to do.
