Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Cultivate local workforce talent to align with the needs of the business community through partnerships with key workforce agencies, faith - and community - based organizations, education and training institutions, and philanthropic, economic development and government agencies.
Detroit Employment Solutions Corporation was formed as a non-profit on July 1, 2012. DESC is a part of the Michigan Works! Association, and is one of 25 Michigan Works! Agencies located around the state. While each agency is unique, each agency:
- Is locally responsive and demand-driven.
- Is governed by a Workforce Development Board
- Provides services to assist employers in finding the skilled talent they need
- Provides a competitive advantage for jobseekers
While DESC is part of Michigan Works!, it is different from other agencies in the state, in that it is Michigan’s largest city and serves more customers than any other Michigan Works! agency.
Like other Michigan Works! agencies, DESC receives the majority of its funding from the federal government. These funds can only be spent on programs and initiatives for which they are intended, and that are consistent with Office of Management and Budget guidelines.
