Get Involved

Interested in networking with service-providers in Genesee County and learning more about the resources offered? Join us for Peer Learning Lunches.

“Peer Learning Lunches” (PLL) are designed to give the various partners a chance to network and learn more about each other’s programs and services. If you serve this population, and/or are interested in making new connections, this is your chance! The next PLL will be held on May 17, 2017 at Genesee Health System. Registration Information coming soon. Lunch will be provided by the Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce. There is no cost to attend, but RSVP is required. This is a great opportunity to learn more about programs and partners that support Opportunity Youth in our community, and take time to make connections with peers. Capacity is limited, so don’t wait to reserve your space.

Upcoming PLLs are as follows:
May 17 – Genesee Health System
July 19 – Genesee County Prevention Coalition
September 20 – TBD
November 15 – TBD

  • Adjusting programs and services to impact the Opportunity Youth population – As a service-provider, you may be able to target your programs or collect data for Opportunity Youth.
  • Hiring a young person – As an employer, you can benefit from an Opportunity Youth worker and receive supports to retain this employee.
  • Donate funds – The Genesee Chamber Foundation can accept funds that support the collective efforts to connect young people to education and employment.
