About This Opportunity:

We have heard from young people about the impact of the past two years on their mental health and wellness. The mental-health crisis that young people are navigating is not new and has only been amplified by the challenges of the past two years. We believe Detroit youth best understand their own needs and we want to resource them to enact their own ideas to support wellness. 
 
Through this grant funding opportunity, we are excited to enable youth-led groups to drive solutions that support the social, emotional, mental, and overall well-being of Detroit youth in their communities.  

Please review the grant opportunity description here to ensure your proposal meets all of the requirements.
