What a way to kick off our 2022 Youth Business Partners Recruitment Symposium. Caren Jones stepped into her new role as Detroit Programs Director Interim and executed with excellence a wonderful session for our youth. Her love for the youth ignited her passionate flame, and she tapped into a community of loving adults to assist her with the mission. During our workshop, youth underwent mock interviews, before participating in a workshop that educates them on how to interview correctly and land their ideal job. We would like to thank Deandre Bell, E'Yandra Otis, T. Williams, Jazzmin Jones, Samatha Todd, Darnisha Towsend, and Randi Maples for donating their time to join us in influencing the thought patterns of our youth to change the world and create unlimited possibilities.


Engineering Summer Camp: Technological innovation has long been the key to US growth and prosperity, and engineering has been an important driver of this innovation. Therefore, we have designed our summer camp to equip our youth participants with the skills to contribute innovative ways to the growth and prosperity of the United States.

Our engineering camp model is arranged in three age-focused tiers so that our youth participants can get the full experience of being an engineer while having fun.

Tier 1

Computer Engineer: In this course, youth ages 5-7 will enjoy a fun way of learning STEMscopes coding, using real computer science, while also hitting Math, Science, and E.L.A standards. With STEMscope coding, youth participants use real typed code on any computer to build crazy fun apps and share them with anyone. We will be using the Bitsbox software to ensure our youth participants have a great computer science experience, creating future computer engineers.

Tier 2

Mechanical Engineer: In this course, youth ages 8-10 will enjoy a fun way of learning aerodynamics, using hands-on innovation. Our youth participants will create their own mini drones in this program. Drones are being designed, built, and programmed to link up and carry larger, heavier objects as a unit. With exceptional portability, unobtrusive size, and remote control, drones are ideal for situations that are dangerous for humans.

Tier 3

Civil Engineer: In this course, youth ages 11-13 will learn the science of building structures and take steps towards working like a civil engineer to design structures using technology and simple materials. Civil engineers design structures like buildings, bridges, and dams. The tallest building in the world stands 2700 feet tall - that’s over half a mile. Our youth participants will learn how civil engineers think and plan for such structures.

All three tiers of our engineering camp will have an athletic component where youth participants can break for fun competitive competitions. Connecting subjects youth enjoy to athletics and physical fitness can help encourage them to pursue cross-disciplinary studies and cultivate self-motivated learning.

Our first Youth Business Partners Recruitment Symposium was great! We had several youth come out and learn about our program. We also had members of our community partner, Workforce Solutions come out and speak with our youth participants. They shared an array of resources that will help our youth to plan their future, starting now. I personally would like to thank Catalina Sanchez, and Tanya James for this wonderful partnership and the amazing opportunities available for our youth.

Our next Youth Recruitment Symposium for our Houston location is Thursday, March 24, 2022 at 6PM CT at Marshall Middle School, located at 1115 Noble St., Houston, TX 77009 (Enter in at the corner of Cochran and Lee St.)
