On Friday, September 15th, from 10:30am – 2:30pm, several Fresh Era Detroit members shared their life path and career experiences with over 175 at-risk youth currently in residential treatment at the Wolverine Human Services Campus located in Vassar, Michigan. The youth at the Vassar Campus are currently receiving treatment through one of the specialized programs of Wolverine Human Services (Juvenile Justice, Mental Health, Substance Abuse, Child-Welfare)
The event included sharing stories and experiences that residents could directly relate to and learn from. After the introduction, the youth were able to walk around the room and engage directly one on one with Fresh Era Detroit members, ask great questions, and learn valuable life skills. At the end, all of residents filled out a questionnaire on the career day guests and participated in a raffle.
