U of M ArchPrep
ROSSETTI will be hiring three high school interns from University of Michigan's Architecture Prep (ArcPrep) program. Launched in 2014 by Taubman College, this innovative educational program works in collaboration with seven Detroit High Schools to introduce 38 high school juniors to design studio instruction. The students are taught by teaching fellows five days a week for half a day and will receive portfolio and college advice, along with exposure to architectural offices in the Detroit area, such as ROSSETTI.
Grow Detroit's Young Talent
For the second year in a row, ROSSETTI is also participating in the City of Detroit's "Grow Detroit's Young Talent" (GDYT) program. A high school student interested in architecture and drafting will join ROSSETTI's studio for the summer. GDYT is a city-wide summer job program that employs young adults at various businesses and programs throughout Metro Detroit. This program prepares today's youth to compete in today's economy, introduces employers to the next generation of Detroit's workforce, and aims to build future leaders. The student is also involved in the Downtown Boxing Gym Youth Program, a program that ROSSETTI donated design services pro bono for their new academics and athletics center.
In addition to bringing high school interns into our studio, ROSSETTI has also sponsored a fellow through the Challenge Detroit program from 2015 - 2016 and will do so again for the next cohort. Challenge Detroit is an innovative leadership program that invites 30 of the brightest young professionals to live, work, and play in Detroit for one year. The primary goal of this is that their experience will inspire these individuals to start their own businesses here, becoming the city’s next generation of creators and leaders. ROSSETTI is also supporting Downtown Boxing Gym with a donation that will allow the program to obtain their own fellow to assist with their growth and community outreach.
