The Youth Connection Referral Process

The Youth Connection will receive referrals from Detroit Public Schools, Children’s Center, the Department of Human Services and the general public to identify 125 youth ages 14 – 21 to participate year-round in all program components or those for which they are eligible. Additionally, youth not affiliated with the above referring organizations may apply, if eligible.

Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis until all 125 slots are filled. All others will be placed on a waiting list until slots become available. To apply for the program please call Nicole Hill at 313-826-7099, Ext. 206.
