About Teach 4 Detroit

The idea for Teach 4 Detroit was born early in 2011, when it was announced that, due to the budget crisis, Detroit would have to close half its public schools- ultimately causing class sizes to increase dramatically. With that thought…

Our mission:

Teach 4 Detroit is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to helping students in Detroit get ahead and achieve success. The present educational system in Detroit, due to restrictions on resources, is unable to adequately cater to students’ needs. Every child should have the opportunity to achieve their academic and career goals. But it’s very difficult to figure everything out on your own, so we’ve developed the Teach 4 Detroit program to help students get from where they are to where they want to be.

Focus on STEM:

The global job market is progressing at an extraordinary rate in the direction of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). A strong STEM education is the most effective path for underserved and underprivileged students to overcome socioeconomic hardship- by equipping them with the knowledge and skills to build a better tomorrow for themselves, their families and their communities. Teach 4 Detroit centers its program around STEM studies.
