Welcome! The Generation of Promise Program at Focus: HOPE is a social justice and youth leadership program for 11th grade students in participating schools across Metro Detroit.
Each year we bring together a cohort of approximately 60 students of diverse backgrounds to learn about and promote social and racial justice. The students represent about 15 high schools in the region. Students become part of a powerful cross-cultural network while experiencing Detroit and its surrounding communities in new ways during the 10 months they have together. Their experiences culminate in an intensive Capstone Project that develops their community organizing skills and gives rise to their voice while advancing systems change.
Each student brings their own unique experiences and perspectives to the Generation of Promise program, and we look forward to learning about you through your application.
The application deadline is Monday, May 24, 2021 at 11:59pm.
