Mission Statement

Our mission is to be an exemplary organization that partners with the community to inspire and prepare young people to succeed through life skills programs, scholarship opportunities, and mentoring relationships that focus on character values identification, goal setting, and strategic planning.

Description

Winning Futures is an award-winning non-profit organization that empowers youth to succeed through mentoring and strategic planning. We partner with high schools in metro Detroit to facilitate weekly innovative mentoring sessions in the school where we engage youth through trusting relationships with mentors, energizing experiences, and unforgettable life lessons. This weekly program is unique in that it has a fun, structured curriculum where mentors teach students though hands-on activities, written exercises, and group discussions. We focus on character value development, self-exploration, goal setting, job readiness skills, overcoming obstacles, and strategic planning. Over 90% of students continue their education past high school and we have awarded over $1.6M in scholarships to local youth. Since 1994, 22,000 students have been impacted by Winning Futures.
