Youthville Detroit


Youthville Detroit, the largest comprehensive youth development center in the midwest, will open its doors to the public on October 8th, 10am – 6pm.

The 75,000 square-foot, $15.8 million facility is a project of the Detroit Youth Foundation, and seeks to provide youth ages 11-19 with a central and safe location to learn and play. Activities and offerings will include mentoring, computer labs for digital photos/movies, a recording studio, art, music and classes, fitness/sports, academic support and more. Additionally, the center will house 10-12 youth and family service organizations.

The October 8th open house will provide parents the opportunity to register their children ($25 for an annual membership). For more information, visit the Detroit Youth Foundation or call (313) 309-1300. Or stop by for a look at the southwest corner of Woodward and Lothrop.

    I attended the ribbon cutting program on Octobe 8.
    I’m thrilled to be part of The Detroit Youth Foundation, Inc. I’m plan to sponsor a young lady to the Youthville and be involved with the concept by participating and financially.
