Alone we can do so little, but together we can do so much. Meet the Founder!

Joshua d. Kennedy, Founder & Executive Director


A native of Detroit, Joshua aims to ignite the spirit of love and service throughout the city. As an educator and advocate for low income and first generation students, Joshua works to create opportunities for Michigan's youth to obtain college access and success; Joshua believes our youth should be developed in social activism and community involvement, in order to transform the city into the engine of the Midwest it once was. Joshua's vision of innovative and direct service opportunities for Detroiters, developed into Volunteer Detroit. He serves as our Executive Director to ensure we continue to meet the needs of the community and maintain positive relationships with our partners and volunteers.
