The Detroit Revitalization Fellows are looking for 20 mid-career professionals to join the program. Successful applicants will connect to the Detroit Revitalization Fellows’ community network, take part in leadership trainings, and become paired with a local employer. Director Graig Donnelly says candidates should be willing to take on work they’re probably not familiar with.

“We’ve had some really interesting examples of people that maybe take a turn in their career as well. For example we had a lawyer who runs the Sunday market at Eastern Market and we’ve had an architect that actually worked in philanthropy as well.”

Donnelly says… for the upcoming group of fellows, he wants to find Detroiters already doing interesting community work, but who don’t necessarily have prestigious degrees. He says applications are due February 20th.
