A Decade of Impact in Detroit

Celebrating Ten Years!

Challenge Detroit is a year-long, multidisciplinary fellowship program that cultivates diverse, innovative, community-minded leaders from the city and across the country, fostering their talents to intellectually support local initiatives that move Detroit forward.

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, our Fellows have worked with over 160 nonprofits through our challenge projects. Together with our host companies, we have supported the creation of 250 jobs at over 115 companies. Through all we do, we are making a lasting impact on our community.
