Our regional team is led by born-and-raised Michiganders and our staff and corps members are a combination of Michigan natives and transplants, all of whom have become fierce advocates for the Motor City, proud to call Detroit home.

Time and again Detroit has shown the rest of the country what is possible through innovation. Innovation like the creation of Detroit Horse Power, a nonprofit founded by 2012 alum David Silver, which teaches Detroit’s kids to ride and care for horses while building critical social-emotional skills.

With a deep belief in all students and your own innovative spirit, you can join the diverse group of over 800 corps members and alumni who are partnering with our city’s highest need schools to make an excellent education a reality for every single child growing up in Detroit.
