ROSSETTI partnered with City Year Detroit to design and renovate the auditorium space at Clark Prep Academy in Detroit's Morningside neighborhood. The auditorium at Clark Prep has the potential to become a transformational project for the school. Beyond performances and assemblies, the auditorium space is used throughout the day as a gathering space for meeting and break-out sessions, tutoring, and off-time for the students. Students participated in workshops to re-imagine the auditorium programming and aesthetic.
City Year is a national non-profit that transforms how schools operate to meet the holistic needs of students by partnering with teachers and principals at high-need schools. Americorps Members work with a select group of at-risk students to provide tutoring and support outside of the classroom. City Year partners with eight schools in Detroit, with 71 Americorps Members engaging over 5,000 students.
Addiional partners include Sachse Construction, and in-kind donations were provided by American Interiors, Sherwin Williams and Woodward Throwbacks.
