Are you looking for a high impact, high purpose and high volume volunteer opportunity?
Sign up for the Six Day Project!

Join thousands of individuals, primarily from corporations in Southeastern Michigan, from October 2-7, 2023, as we come together to clear blight and beautify Detroit’s Cooley community!

We’re removing blight from the front yards of vacant properties (clearing debris and cutting down overgrown grass, weeds and brush) as well as mowing the lawns of seniors, veterans and people with disabilities. These activities greatly increase the level of interaction between community residents, students, and our volunteers who live outside the Cooley Community.

All tools are provided, and volunteers will receive a free t-shirt. Volunteers should bring their own work gloves and protective eyewear/sunglasses.

Below is the schedule for your volunteer day:

  • 11-11:45 a.m. // Arrive at Cooley High School & board buses to command centers
  • 12-4 p.m. // Blight removal and beautification on assigned block
  • 4-5 p.m. // Volunteer wrap-up event at Cooley High School

If you have any questions about the project, please reach out to Audrey Cox at


Our 2022 Six Day Project was held October 3-8, 2021. This past year, we had over 5,000 volunteers register! We busted blight on vacant properties and mowed over 400 lawns of residents, delivered 2,000 freshly potted mums, donated and installed 100 Ring video doorbells, and painted addresses on curbs. 

Since 2014, Life Remodeled has invested $43.5 million into four Detroit neighborhoods. We’ve beautified 2,076 blocks, repaired 194 homes, boarded up 2,062 houses and engaged 77,020 volunteers.
