Setting Up Shop in the Motor City

Nov 30, 2018

The momentum continued as CEO Detroit launched in June with strong support from the GreenLight Fund Detroit, the Michigan Department of Corrections, and the City of Detroit. We are honored to be a part of such a strong network of local service providers.

Leading this expansion is Detroit native Margrit Allen, who brings a background in education and workforce development to her role as site director. Thirty-one participants have graduated from Pathway to Employment so far, all of whom are tasked with caring for 100 parks and green spaces around the city as members of the CEO Detroit transitional work crew. In the coming weeks we will be doubling the number of work crew positions available, something we look forward to celebrating at the launch event hosted by the GreenLight Fund later this month!
