I would like to suggest Winning Futures, a non-profit, to be the recipient of the Summer of Sharing $1000 award. Winning Futures is a nationally recognized and award-winning program that empowers high school students to succeed. Through a structured Workforce Prep program, students throughout Metro Detroit are immersed in a four-year experiential curriculum that includes mentoring, life skills development, goal setting, job readiness training, and career exploration. WFs goal is to be a strong mentoring organization that has a long-term, positive impact on youth and the community. I believe the impact of this program’s success is measured in relationship building, which is essential in creating strong, connected members of the community. I am privileged to be a WF mentor to so many driven students! Their motto is ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING! Check them out at winningfutures.org. You will probably want to sign up to be a mentor too!
