A Decade of Impact in Detroit

Celebrating Ten Years!

MORE THAN JUST A JOB. The Challenge Detroit fellowship program is a year-long, full-time, paid job that comes with the unique opportunity to contribute to Detroit’s vibrant communities, develop as a leader, grow your career, connect with mentors and build community with diverse, innovative, community-minded leaders, thinkers and doers.

Join the Challenge

We’re igniting a community of leaders committed to making a positive impact in Detroit. It’s our Fellows, their Host Companies, supporters, and the nonprofits we partner with that move our mission forward. How will you join the challenge?

Our Challenge Projects

Challenges are the heart of our program. Each Friday, our Fellows work together and collaborate with local nonprofits on strategic, intellectually-based projects designed to address our city’s greatest needs and opportunities, positively contributing to our community.

Our Impact

Since our founding in 2012, Challenge Detroit has developed, supported and connected community-minded leaders, doers and thinkers to catalyze collaboration and amplify the positive impact on our city.

Our program year has been made possible with leading support from HUNTINGTON BANK
