During this difficult time, nonprofit organizations must be innovative and begin to collaborate to continue their impact on youth. The first step is to network with other youth serving agencies in Southeast Michigan to determine if you have complimentary services that can be partnered.

Like speed dating, speed networking provides several minutes of face time to exchange information with other professionals. Then, when the bell rings, you rotate to the next person. Speed networking helps you expand your network by quickly learning about what others do.

Please make checks payable to: MDMC, 27500 Cosgrove, Warren, MI 48092. This session will be followed by an event on June 5th that will help facilitate and match programs together for collaborative efforts.
