Partnering with Building Better Men
We are so excited to share with you one of our newest partnerships here in the 9th precinct! Camp Restore Detroit has recently partnered with Building Better Men to provide a safe place to learn and grow.
Building Better Men provides life skills and literacy enhancement programs, early career exploration, and recreational activities for males ages 8-18. The organization works to show young men that they can be successful despite the challenges associated with absent or uninvolved fathers while enabling them to become productive members of society.
This summer, Camp Restore Detroit hosted Building Better Men’s program called Chess and Chew. Here, young men gathered to learn life skills as well as the game of chess. Now, our partnership with Building Better Men is growing into something bigger and better.
Starting this week, we are beginning a tutoring program! Students in our community will meet with their tutors virtually to work on different skills as well as homework help. The students and tutors have been paired and are excited to get to know one another. We are so thrilled to watch students grow as we walk through school and life together.
Together, Camp Restore Detroit and Building Better Men will work to restore hope and empower young men in the great city of Detroit! To learn more about Building Better Men, visit https://buildingbettermen.org/
