A City of Hope.
32 Fellows driven and united by the opportunity to make an impact. As a regional revitalization effort, Challenge Detroit is energizing the city's creative and professional core. Bringing tomorrows leaders together today, we are revitalizing one of the most significant cities in the world.
Over 1600 applications have been received in the two years since the programs inception. With young professionals vying for the chance to part of a social movement. This years selected class of fellows will work for dynamic host companies across the greater Detroit area. These companies are leaders in their industries, and believe in the importance of attracting and retaining talented professionals in the region.
At the programs core, the fellows assemble as a team. They come together to address issues and opportunities facing the community with non-profit organizations focused on changing perceptions about Detroit. These non-profits strengthen communities.
Together we are investing our intellectual capital, hands and hearts to the betterment of the city. Spreading the message where Detroit is a place where doers Live, Work, Play, Give and Lead.
