Technology Training For Autistic Youth

In 2009, Camille Proctor launched The Color of Autism, a nonprofit organization dedicated to advocacy, awareness and knowledge among Black parents, connecting families to local services, and providing one-to-one support.  Proctor founded her organization because as she traveled her journey, she noticed how little was known about autism, especially in the Black community. It seemed that many were dismissive of autism and more comfortable with the term, “slow.”

Today , The Color of Autism has created a workforce development program, imEnabled, to provide the training, support, and connection to employers that young adults with Autism or intellectual disabilities need.

Camille Proctor will give an overview of autism in the Black community and the organization's program to train youth in the STEM education. Come out and learn how you can become a part of this initiative and make a positive difference in the lives of our youth.

M1 Rail Project Update and Entrepreneurship opportunities 


M-1 RAIL is a 3.3 mile circulating streetcar along Woodward Avenue between Congress Street and West Grand Boulevard in Detroit, Michigan. M-1 RAIL is an unprecedented public-private partnership and model for regional collaboration. Notably, this is the first major transit project being led and funded by both private businesses, philanthropic organizations, in partnership with local government, the State of Michigan, and U.S. Department of Transportation. The mission of M-1 RAIL is to create a catalyst for investment, economic development and urban renewal that positively impacts the entire region through the construction of a streetcar circulator system running along and connecting Woodward Avenue from the Riverfront to the New Center and North End neighborhoods. The M-1 RAIL Woodward Avenue Streetcar project is envisioned to be one element of a future modern, world-class regional transit system where all forms of transportation, including rail, bus, vehicle, bicycle and pedestrian, are considered and utilized to build a vibrant, walkable region that includes a thriving Downtown Detroit. This city center is envisioned by supporters of M-1 RAIL to become a foundation for growth and prosperity throughout the surrounding neighborhoods adjacent to the Central Business District, Midtown, New Center and North End. Ms. Sommer Woods, Director of External Relations will be joining us to provide a general overview of the M-1 RAIL project. Mr. Damon Rogers, a student intern with the M-1 RAIL project last summer, will give a brief talk on his assignment: Train car communications and power systems. Don't miss this exciting opportunity to learn more about this "game changing" project going on in the city of Detroit!


The meeting is scheduled for March 19, 2015 at 6:30pm at TechTown 440 Burroughs Detroit MI.
