As a parent, Detroit Impact was always there to help out Thank You!Mr.Colbert,and all the wonder people who keep Detroit Impact going.
I have been apart of Detroit Impact for over 10+ years! My relationship with the youth center started at a young age. I was first apart of the program then when of age started working with the summer youth program. When in high school I would still come be apart of the many different programs the youth center had to offer. After high school this relationship with Detroit Impact continued as I stayed volunteering with the youth. The reason WHY you might ask...!??? Because this is a wonderful place to be! From the director to the volunteers everyone is there to help. They are here and have always been here to help and serve the community and the youth! With the new fun learning activities, programs, and trips Detroit Impact is assisting the community daily. They have made a difference in many children and families lives. Detroit Impact is just that a Positive Impact for Detroit! Every city needs a Great Nonprofit like Detroit Impact!
My children and I have been involved with Detroit Impact sporadically over the last Decade. What I can definitely appreciate, is the consistency they've shown. I've never known the center to close its doors, or turn away a member of the community in need of assistance. I can personally vouch and say, anytime I needed them, they were there for me.
I love the amount of dedication that is put into bettering the surrounding community. You can tell that Calvin Colbert and his staff genuinely care about creating a better environment for our youth to grow in.
I became involved with Detroit Impact over 10 years ago as a student at Erma Henderson Middle (Formerly Brooks), and I have not looked back since. Calvin Colbert and Staff exhibit a passion for the community and work being done.
Detroit is a great example of a Community Center. They are always sponsoring different events in the Cody-Rouge area that greatly benefit its residents.
I have been apart of Detroit Impact since I can remember. I love working here after school and learning the administrative side to a Non-Profit.
Detroit Impact is amazing place! The people are very friendly and knowledgeable, and they are always so open whenever I visit. My children especially enjoy their time at the Kids' Club Summer Day Camp.
For the last twenty years, Detroit Impact has been a staple of the Cody-Rouge community, Helping everyone from Seniors to At-Risk Youth. I've been a proud volunteer for the majority of my adult life, as well as a participant in the Youth Programs as a child.
I have had the chance to donate my time and skills with the center and the a team that has a hart for the kids.
Being a volunteer for Detroit Impact Community Center has been wonderful. Enjoying participation in walks. parades and safe school routes. We have become a close knit group that we can count on for many things. I call us a family. We do many things together we eat well and enjoy each others company. Mr. Colbert is a blessing to all who get involved with him, always giving and sharing whenever needed. He's always doing something for the children in and around the community. He's very involved in many things. We have enjoyed Steve Harvey's mentoring program, Stevie Wonder's music, and lots of baseball. When you're involved with a group like Detroit Impact it teaches you to be selfless. You begin to practice what you have learned from the center in your own neighborhoods. It's a continuation of growth and development personally as well as professionally for all person's involved. We passed out book bags for students, summer programs for children with lots of trips to museums and science centers and many more places. There is always something to do, First aid training just to name some of the things that goes on in this community center. You become a life long volunteer working in your own neighborhoods staying involved and connected. Making it a better place for children and adults. I give Detroit Impact a five star I have learned many things being involve with the center, and will continue to stay involve for years to come.
Detroit Impact is a phenomenal asset to the Cody Rouge Community! From their community blight programs and safe school route initiatives to their continued support in keeping our streets violent free- Detroit Impact is a wonderful community center for youth whom continue to be engaged in supporting our Detroit residents.
Awesome development programs while I was growing up I was excited about being a part of such a great Impact Center it really had a huge impact on my life. Great Great Director as well as staff. Pleasant people they always ask would you like water while you are waiting or look for a book for your child.
I have been apart of the the Detroit Impact "Family" for the last twenty years. My origins are in the After-School and Saturday Kids' Club program(s) facilitated here. The time I spent being mentored, guided, and educated about the "right paths in life" have instilled the value of Community Service and "giving back" in my personality. Without an organization like this one, Many more of my peers, as well as myself, would have surely fell victim to the pitfalls and self-destruction associated with growing up below the poverty level. The relationships I've forged here have stood the test of time, distance, worth, etc. I've gained some really insightful mentors thru out the years, and am thankful for a pillar of the community to exist like this one.
I've had the pleasure of working with Detroit Impact and Mr Calvin Colbert for 10 years. Detroit Impact has served as a catalyst for youth development for over 20 years. Mr
Colbert definitely has made a difference in the city of Detroit. Detroit Impact is awesome!
It's a place I go where there isn't any trouble. Mr. Colbert and the staff there seem to really care. I like when the programs are going on, a lot of people come to the center then. Mr Colbert lets me help out with tasks and I learn a lot.
I went to one of the audio visual programs at the center. It was cool and allowed me to use equipment I have never used before. I can't wait until they have that program again. We got to make videos and place them on youtube.
I see the Brothers on Patrol, which I'm told is a program at Detroit Impact, around my son's high school, Henry Ford. They make sure the kids are safe when they are coming and going to school. It's nice to know that there are extra eyes out there to help keep the kids safe.
I think Detroit Impact is a great center for children with great potential. It has done marvelous things while I've been here and I predict shall do many more.
Our church needed space to meet. We couldn't afford to buy our own church home and Detroit Impact had space and let us meet there at a rate we could afford. We moved into our own building last month, but Detroit Impact provided us with that needed helping hand.
I've been apart of Detroit Impact for 20 years. I haven't seen another agency of it's kind in the Metro Detroit area to date, which is why I believe I've been apart of it for so long. We not only try to provide an creative and safe outlet for the children but we also try to sneak and teach them some viable life skills along the way. I say sneak because by the time they figured out they learned something, it's too late!! Our mission is to change the world, one child at a time.
My God son, Michael, was a part of the group of young men who were apart of the Detroit Impact group that went to the Steve Harvey Mentoring program when it came to Detroit this year. Mike has a bad temper and does bad in school but I could see a change in his attitude after he attended that program. I hope Mike continues to change.
I went by to use their internet. I was looking for a job and needed to get online to do some research. I was happy to find they did have computers available to the public. It was a great help because it was closer to my house than the library.
I took my nephew to one of there programs called Zspeed where the kids get to build and race R/C cars. It was a different approach to mentoring. I thought it was pretty good.
Detroit Impact offers several programs to the youth of Metro Detroit. One of those being based in media arts & technology. The center partnered with Microsoft Corporation over the summer and sent a group of 12 kids to a tech summer camp where they were exposed to everything from MS Office products to game design. Leading the way one step at a time...
Our first task is to help low income and at-risk youth to develop a sound value system, strong personal motivation and positive self-esteem. We seek to assist the youth in becoming responsible members of the community. Our program is a cooperative effort with parents, churches, schools and business corporations and the general public.
Detroit Impact has served there community for over 20 years by focusing on kids. It is a resource center for youth between the ages of 6 and 17 in the area. If it were not for there resources many of youth in there neighborhood would have been completely lose.
