What if we worked together to create a whole generation of innovators and lifelong learners, people with the tools and capacity to empathize, ideate, create and adapt when facing a challenge at school, in their community, at work, or in everyday life?
At HFLI, we continue to work relentlessly with our partners to make a difference in the future for thousands of young people and their urban communities by supporting and sustaining work with teachers and students at Henry Ford Academies so that our graduates are prepared to succeed in college, pursue a career of choice and address challenges with innovative thinking. And now, we are advancing our commitment to redesign how people learn by sharing and evolving our model of success with schools, communities and businesses around the world.
We can’t do it without you. Connections and collaborations with people and organizations are critical to finding new and better ways of learning, developing and sustaining our organizational capacity, and bringing fresh thinking to schools, communities and workplaces across the country.
We nurture and grow our relationships – with local business owners who give Henry Ford Academy students the opportunity to complete an internship in a real workplace, an urban farmer who helps a 7th grade class understand the real issues behind a neighborhood problem, an entrepreneur who invites a group of teens to develop a potential new product for his company, like-minded institutions that believe in breaking down barriers to creativity and innovation, and our donors who trust us to be a living example of their principles through their financial gifts.
