Every year we welcome about 30 individuals to join as Fellows. Throughout their fellowship year, Fellows work at their host company gaining career experience from Monday through Thursday. On Fridays, Fellows engage with Challenge Detroit and participate in fellowship programming which includes the Challenge Projects—the heart of our program—leadership development and team-building workshops, training sessions, and opportunities to connect with local leaders and mentors.
Since our founding in 2012, our Fellows have worked with over 170 nonprofits through our Challenge Projects. Together with our host companies, we have supported over 320 Fellows in meaningful jobs at over 125 companies. Through all we do, we are making a lasting impact on our community.
