Comerica Bank and Detroit Lions Team Up to Empower Metro Detroit Youth 

With each Detroit Lions first down gained this season at Ford Field, Comerica Bank will aid Winning Futures and the empowerment organization’s mission to prepare youth in metro Detroit for the workforce.

Through the Comerica Bank First Down partnership, Winning Futures will receive $100 from Comerica for every Lions’ first down accumulated at home games during the regular season, culminating in a final contribution at the Lions home finale Sunday, December 29 vs. the Green Bay Packers.

“Educating, mentoring and empowering our youth provides critical resources to help young adults reach their potential and impact our communities,” said Michael Cheatham, Comerica Bank Vice President Michigan market contributions and SE Michigan Community Investment. “We look forward to partnering with the Detroit Lions this season to align with Winning Futures and support their outstanding outreach services that prepare metro Detroit students for the workforce.”

Winning Futures delivers an evidence-based, structured Workforce Prep program for students throughout metro Detroit. The program includes in-class mentoring, life skills development, goal setting, job readiness training, and career exploration. With help from volunteer mentors and partnerships with the business community, Winning Futures transform students into self-reliant, employable, and productive adults with defined academic and career goals, and highly desirable workforce skills.
