Our Beginnings and Purpose

Dedicated to Make a Change, L3C began in 2010. As an educator with over 27 years of experience in public and independent schools, I saw an intense need for socially aware, service-driven education. The L3C structure is a socially conscious way of doing business- a hybrid tax designation that combines mission based commitment with the flexible structure of a LLC. I prioritize the education of youth in our community over the bottom line.

We host events, sell merchandise and conduct diversity training sessions to provide programs necessary to interrupt the acceptance of the under education that happens in Ypsilanti Community Schools and to create a space for a diverse group of youth to pursue their interests, learn from one another, and develop as learners and contributors to their community.

Our Mission

Our mission is to connect youth with the world to promote peace, greater understanding and a love of learning. Each program is created to focus on ways to give youth a variety of new and positive experiences needed to interrupt their acceptance of the under education at Ypsilanti Community Schools and to reduce their detention and incarceration rate.

Anti-Discrimination Policy

Dedicated to Make a Change is committed to an anti-discrimination policy in all of its programs and services. Dedicated to Make a Change is consciously and proactively inclusive of all areas of diversity including, but not limited to, differences in learning, family structure, race, ethnicity, color, national origin, ancestry, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, age, socioeconomic status, marital status, language, disability, or immigration status.
