Grants of up to $1,000 (and occasionally up to $2,000) to Michigan local and grassroots organizations that are working to address the critical literacy needs of young men living and attending school in Detroit. The target population for proposed projects/activities includes African American and Latino boys, ages 11-18. Successful grant applications must include a clearly defined strategy to provide literacy enhancements for this population during non-school hours.

1. The project is specifically aligned with the instructional program within the school;
2. The project is approved by the teacher whose class will be impacted and by the school principal;
3. The project model has a proven record of improving student literacy.
Grants will support reading, improved literacy activities and relate to the increase of graduation rates among the youth. This may include reading circles, book clubs, group tutoring and mentoring, data gathering, planning, creating materials, obtaining training, and other communal efforts and activities. Youth must be involved in such activity.
