Detroit Youth Summer Jam, Detroit Youth Power Fest 2017 was birthed as a vehicle to enhance positive interactions between Detroit youth and the Detroit Police Department.
The Youth Power Fest will provide Detroit youth with resources, education and entertainment that will encourage and empower them to think differently about their lives, police and the community.
