Press Release (ePRNews.com) - DETROIT - Jul 20, 2017 - When 14-year old Marcus began coming to Gifting Dreamers, he had just lost his father, was skipping classes, felt hopeless and considered drop out of school altogether. Things were not looking up for the young man and then his mother heard about a program called Gifting Dreamers.
Gifting Dreamers is a youth leadership program dedicated to helping children, ages 12-18, which have lost a parent due to illness, violence or incarceration, receive the academic and emotional support needed to achieve their dreams.
Over the past 3 years, Gifting Dreamers has:
· Provided life skills classes for adolescent girls and boys focusing on personal and financial responsibility, creativity enhancement, nutritional importance, team building and physical fitness.
· Enrolled male participants in an interactive mentorship program that partners them with positive male role models that are leaders in various areas of business, entertainment and military within the community.
· Provided academic and personal support to many students within the Detroit Public School system which assisted them in going on to become first generation high school graduates and in some cases, first generation college students.
This summer, Gifting Dreamers is hosting a camp for boys, ages 12-18, at the Miracle Camp in Lawton, Michigan, August 28-August 31, 2017 and you can help! For just $263, you can sponsor a child and provide them with a once in a lifetime experience. Please join us in this great opportunity to serve the underserved and support a worthy cause. Your involvement will contribute to making this year’s event unlike any other program available for at-risk male youth in the Metro Detroit area.
