Give Merit Mentorship Porgram.

Are you looking for a volunteer opportunity that engages youth in Detroit? If so, Give Merit’s mentorship program, FATE, is looking for University of Michigan students to become mentors!  

FATE is a four-year, cohort-based program for high school students in Detroit who attend the Jalen Rose Leadership Academy. Its mission is to provide resources and opportunities for Detroit youth to embrace education and become world-class citizens, with a goal to motivate each student to graduate high school and attend college.

Mentors help facilitate workshop activities where students learn skills in business, marketing, and design-thinking while also supporting their mentees as they develop personally and academically. The curriculum is complemented by ongoing soft-skill building activities and typically has regular excursion workshops with community partners such as Zingerman’s, Google, Carhartt, and Plante Moran.

If you are interested in mentoring for the FATE Program during the 2021-2022 academic year, email Give Merit’s Stakeholder Strategy Director, Rachel Mazzaro, at rmazzaro@meritgoodness.com for more information!
