The vision for our 2019 six day project (August 5-10) includes:
Clearing every blighted alleyway within a four-square mile geography surrounding the Durfee Innovation Society (August 5-0).
Avengers Youth Mentoring Summer Camp for 250 K-8 students (August 5-9).
Basketball Camp for middle and high school students led by the nationally renowned organization The Family (August 5-9).
Career Fair for youth ages 14-24 (dates TBD).
Family Fun Days with activities, entertainment, carnival games and the largest bounce house in the world (August 8-10).
As 2019 marks the 52nd year anniversary of the 1967 Detroit uprising, Life Remodeled and our partners continue to invest in the neighborhood surrounding Central High School and the Durfee Innovation Society, in the community where Detroit’s civil unrest began. Our collective impact serves not only as a powerful commemoration of the progress that has been made, but also the progress we continue to strive toward.
In the past, Life Remodeled made only one-year investments into neighborhoods, however in 2017 we decided to commit a minimum of four years per community. Therefore, we will remain focused on the Durfee and Central Community until at least the year 2020.
