In October, Ford Motor Company Fund launched the Ford Resource and Engagement Center (FREC) at Fisher Magnet Upper Academy. Programs will emphasize education, job training, workforce development, investments focused on the next generation of Detroiters, and serving families on the city’s far east side. This Center provides services to thousands of students and residents in the area with the help of nonprofit community groups. Services offered include a food distribution hub, legal assistance, job training, and workshops supporting business startups. Ford’s STEAM Lab is available, providing the science, technology, engineering, arts, and math curriculum necessary for young people seeking high-demand jobs in the future.
