Since 2014, we have led the effort to eradicate hunger and increase community involvement and volunteerism for millennials across the Metro-Detroit area. In 2016, we made the advances to further our efforts. Volunteer Detroit is, and aims to be, the premier source of community service for millennials. We create experiences that build our community and while enjoyably building our character.
