As a newcomer to Detroit and The Skillman Foundation, I’ve launched a listening tour to hear from Detroit youth and the caring adults in their lives to inform where the Foundation should direct its funding and advocacy. The listening tour gives me a chance to hear from hundreds of Detroiters. Hundreds of Detroiters, and yet, so many voices will still be missing.

To open this dialogue further, we’ve created this online form. It’s not the warm face-to-face interaction I prefer, but time is finite, and our children are too precious not to do all we can to listen to their needs. 

Below are 5 prompts. Feel free to comment only where you’re inspired to.

THANK YOU!

Warmly,
Angelique Power
President & CEO of The Skillman Foundation
