Building Impact

In culmination of a year of working on group challenges with nonprofits and organizations from various sectors around the City of Detroit, each fellow in the month of July takes on their own personal challenge. These are called Personal Impact Projects. We as fellows are allowed to exercise all that we’ve learned in the past […]

“Coach Clare…Coach Clare…COACH CLARE!”

 

One of my personal goals for my year in Challenge Detroit was to find an organization within the city where I can volunteer on a regular a basis in a meaningful and fulfilling way. I did just that by becoming a Detroit P.A.L soccer coach for U6 (four to six year olds). I got to […]

Detroit Hustle

Detroit Hustles Harder. This potent phrase can be seen on many t-shirts (thanks to Aptemal Clothing LLC) all over the metro area, but what is its significance? One of the owners of this clothing franchise, J.P. O’Grady, explains that the phrase “came from us growing up in the city, everybody trying to make something from […]

Lessons Learned from Nashville

What makes Challenge Detroit so unique is that every fellow has a different working experience four days a week before we reunite each Friday. At the end of April, I was able to participate in a company tradition that made my four day work week a little more exciting than the rest. I had the […]

How I Became a Professional Bowler

Alright, I’ll admit, the title is a little misleading. If you’re thinking about “professional bowler” in the conventional sense and are similarly looking to pursue a career in the bowling field, then I concede you will be slightly disappointed with the rest of this blog. On the other hand, if you are thinking about the […]

Food: The Most Important Meal of the Day

Food. Ah glorious food, is there anything sweeter in life? Or saltier? Or more umami like? IMPOSSIBLE! Food is my favorite meal of the day. Not only does it nourish our bodies, it delights our pallets and brings friends, family, and loved ones together. Food is a culture. It’s a necessary part of being but […]

An Hour in the Life – Experiencing Poverty

“Poverty is like punishment for a crime you didn’t commit.” – Eli Khamarov
After a month long break from challenge, in the beginning of January we got back into the swing of things with a “reboot” Friday. The point of the reboot was to reconnect with all the fellows and re-orientate ourselves to the rigor of […]

Giving Back this Holiday Season

The end of the year is a hectic time filled with preparations for the holidays, potential vacations, family time, and the ever impending New Year Resolutions. It’s also a reflective time, one filled with gratitude and the overwhelming sentiment of gratefulness that drives people to give back to the community around them and to those […]

Fellows Give Back Together

Live. Work. Play. Lead. Give. The five pillars of Challenge Detroit help guide the fellows in interacting with the city via multiple platforms. We live here everyday, the play part is easy enough given all the events that go on in the city, we work with our host companies, and we lead every Friday through challenges; […]

Brunch Detroit

One of my favorite things to do in this world is eat good food with friends, have drinks over lovely conversation, and enjoy each others company whilst in the company of many more doing the same. This leads me to my next bold statement: brunch is the best. I stand by that 100%. First of […]
