Detroit Heals Detroit is partnering with Wanderlust Revolution on an initiative to bring radical healing to our Male peers. Wanderlust Revolution, Inc., is a Detroit-based nonprofit with a goal to decolonize travel culture and utilize travel as a form of resistance in order to reach liberation.
This initiative is a Travel Immersion Initiative for Formerly Incarcerated Detroit Male Youth. No nation has locked up more of its own people per capita than the US. Our goal in this 8-week program is to give these young men their purpose and power back that society otherwise would have tried to take away from them, indefinitely. This will impact an entire system that helped contribute to the trauma in the first place, not leaving it neatly intacted encouraging the development of further trauma for generations to come.
We are currently looking for program participants for our Travel Immersion Initiative for Formerly Incarcerated Detroit Male Youth. The 8-week program as well as the travel immersion experience at the end is all fully-funded.
Our Goal: Give these young men their purpose and power back that society otherwise would have tried to take away from them, indefinitely. Giving them a piece of their power back that essentially undercuts the likelihood of recidivism.
Ultimate Goal: Collect Significant Data to Impact Legislation in a way that combats the restrictions put on individuals who've had contact with the Juvenile In(Justice) System.
Please email us at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org if you know any young men who may benefit from this initiative.
