Mayor Mike Duggan invited companies including Marathon, Michigan Science Center, Ideal Group, and others to join him in a sit down and talk about Detroit’s youth.  Grow Detroit’s Youth Talent is a six-week summer youth employment program that has been re-tooled to ensure pre-screening and on-the-job support for teens and employers.

With the help of Mayor Mike Duggan and Detroit’s corporate leaders, the city is expanding the program to employ more young people, provide stronger readiness training and more employer support, and a better coordination across summer job opportunities in Detroit.
