Regional Spotlight: Detroit Shoreway

February 7, 2023

Regional Spotlight Interview with MyCom Coordinator David Ramsey

What are the youth development priorities for the Detroit Shoreway Region?

We work with our youth to create pathways to sustainable income and family support. A sense of responsibility and a role in the families ability to survive is critically important for young people and a very important part of the development of a sense of pride for youth. This is accomplished through partnerships with Y.O.U. (Youth Opportunities Unlimited), youth hygiene bags, and strategic programming centered around the engagement of soft skills.

What actions & strategies does the Detroit Shoreway Region use to address the youth development priorities?

We are coordinating events and pop-ups to engage youth in the idea of programming and neighborhood awareness. During these, we ensure information for Y.O.U. is available, as well as programming designed to develop soft skills and communication.

  • “MyCom Youth Development Initiative aims to engage via education, such amazing out-of-school opportunities as they recognize that youth who are bullied are more likely to feel disconnected from school."

  • "MyCom has extended hundreds of youth exceptional opportunities to grow, expand their knowledge and express their voice in so many ways. I can honestly say that the youth are not the only ones who are learning, growing and having wonderful exposure opportunities. This adult is a beneficiary of countless blessing as well."
