As Curbed Detroit reported last month, 150 teens from all over metro Detroit and Flint have been working to revitalize their communities as part of General Motors' Student Corps. Student Corps coordinator Matthew Ybarra tells Curbed "It is a very exciting time as the teams are all beginning to wrap up their final projects." He added that the student corps will finish all their work by Thursday and will give presentations about their completed projects to GM executives August 18.
Last year, GM Student Corps members did landscaping, cleanups and renovation work at 15 metro Detroit schools and 17 parks, carting away 1,844 bags of trash. Some of this year's corps members have been working with Detroit nonprofit Life Remodeled to rehab Osborn High School on Detroit's east side, among other projects, including work at East Detroit High and landscaping along a roadway in Hamtramck.
