According to Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan, the MEEF supported program is one of the top ways the city is helping its youth secure a better future:
“There is no greater gateway to success than education. Perhaps the most impactful program we have initiated is the Detroit Promise, which provides two years of tuition-free college for graduates of any Detroit high school — whether private, public, or charter.”
He wrote these words in a June 2016 article for CNN Money Magazine. Read the whole article “How Detroit plans to help the city’s black youth succeed” online at CNN.com.
