Be a Part of Michigan’s Future with #ProjectMIYouth

Jobs for Michigan’s Graduates’ (JMG) has been largely state-funded throughout its operating history but can no longer count on this money due to the limited pool available for job training programs like ours. Now, more than ever, these young people need to find hope. We have a proven track record in providing real results and look forward to a partnership with you to rebuild the real assets of Michigan – its people.

Invest in #ProjectMIYouth, a campaign with the aggressive goal of raising $100,000 over the next 90 days to help the young people we serve. Your investment will shape Michigan’s future.

Thank you for any contribution you can make today to help us move forward in deepening our impact on the lives of those we serve, and, in turn, those they serve. Click here to donate.

Here’s Why We Need Your Help:

COVID-19 is shining a light on a reality JMG knows all too well – Michigan’s most vulnerable youth will be some of the hardest hit and the longest impacted by this pandemic. JMG youth and their families are the precise population at the epicenter of this crisis: challenged and often economically disadvantaged with little-to-no reserves who are now struggling with getting their basic needs met.

No testimony is more powerful than the voices of our young people.

During the pandemic, JMG Specialists have been delivering virtual services to over 3200 youth. They are in constant contact with our youth, connecting them to resources and being a stable, supportive, adult, helping them emotionally deal with the uncertainty that each day brings.

Post-COVID, JMG is more essential than ever with services that are laser-focused on lifting this population from economic hardship into prosperity. And in a time when other programs and services are shutting down, we are ramping up. We simply cannot afford to leave any young person behind.
