Located in Detroit, The Youth Connection is a nonprofit organization that works to connect youth to brighter futures. The Youth Connection offers a variety of programs that connects youth, young adults, and their families in metro Detroit to resources and opportunities that work to increase participation in after-school programs, improve academic outcomes, provide nutrition education and obesity prevention, and helps youth develop job skills through training and paid internships. The organization was established in 1996 to create “systems change,” or establish lasting change in policy, funding, and procedures of various institutions. In 2005, the organization set goals for increased after-school participation and has since expanded its vision to ensure 75 percent of Detroit students participate in after-school programs.
