Challenge Detroit- Year 2 (End of the Road)

Wow, is it already August of 2014??  This year flew by so fast, I feel like I’m still getting used to the city.

Around March of 2013 as I was preparing for life after undergraduate school, I thought to myself “I have a bachelors degree in Economics and a keen interest in entrepreneurship, how do  I […]

Detroit Youth Games- Student Athletes

Hello Detroit,

I can’t believe it’s already July!  This month we had the opportunity to split up from the group as a whole and work on our own July Impact Projects.  My team of Carlos, Tiara, and Tom decided to host a sports mentoring clinic at Belle Isle for kids ages 8-16.

          […]

Youth Empowerment

                                                                                                       

In our June Challenge Detroit project, I was assigned to the Osborn neighborhood.  Our group was asked to come up with a creative solution to addressing the blight situation in Osborn.  Our proposed solution was an organization called the BOOM (Brighten Our Osborn Movement) Squad, where the youth of Osborn are challenged to come […]

Build Day in the D

Helping reconfigure the outside of Cody-rouge High school on a Saturday with other fellowship programs in the city was extremely gratifying to see.  It’s amazing when around 50 like-minded individuals go out of their way on a Saturday afternoon to shape up and beautify the exterior of a struggling high school.  Challenge Detroit, Venture for […]

Road Warrior

April has been a filled with some great experiences. My new position at Crestmark as a field examiner, has allowed me to travel to places in the mid-west where one might not travel to on their own time. So far I’ve been to: Kalamazoo, Jackson, Cleveland, Youngstown, and Pittsburgh. As a field examiner, I’ve been […]

Let The Madness Begin

March represents the beginning of spring, but for Challenge Detroit it also represented the beginning of a new relationship with my partner non-profit 826 Michigan.  826 is a writing/tutoring organization that helps bring the imaginative side out of many children ages 6-18, while also helping the children come to the realization that they’re smarter than […]

Time Flies

It’s been a quick 6 months, but as I look back at my time spent in Detroit as part of this amazing fellowship, I can truly say that it has exceeded my expectations. 

Challenge Detroit has taught me three key things:

1.       Don’t judge a book by its cover.

2.       Appreciate what you have in life.

3.       […]

Cheers to the year of Endless Opportunity- 2014

“5,4,3,2,1, HAPPY NEW YEAR!” 2013 was great but the amount of opportunity waiting for Challenge Detroit and the City of Detroit is indescribable.

I got the chance to bring in the new year of 2014 from the concert hall of the Fillmore in downtown Detroit, one of Detroit’s most well known concert halls.

Tis the Season

Ahh December has been great.  As the cold weather approaches, Detroit seems to have a warming effect on outsiders.  It is great to see people coming in to support the Lions, and RedWings, but also to enjoy the winter festivities happening in Detroit, but how do we get them to stay and explore/contribute to the […]

“Where Amazing Happens”

“Deeeetrrooiiit baskestballlll” shout the Piston’s fans as we sat down to view the game against Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder. This would be my first not only Piston’s game but NBA game, so my expectations were high.  I had only heard bad things about Detroit Piston’s basketball.  Everything from, “they’re probably the worst […]
