Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities

Six-Day Project

Detroit once housed more than 1.8 million people. However, now with only 650,000 residents, we have a lot of vacant land—thousands of acres of overgrown brush and weeds making certain areas not only visually depressing but also more dangerous.

The City of Detroit’s blight removal program is second to none; however, it’s just not possible for vacant properties to be maintained weekly at this time in our city’s history, and we need the help of volunteers like you to continue investing in the neighborhoods surrounding the one stop shop of opportunity that we’ve created together, the Durfee Innovation Society.

Additionally, given the division and polarization we’re facing in our country, we need Six Day Projects where people from all walks of life can work together–now more than ever.

The 2021 Six Day Project is October 4-9. Learn more here or contact Corzetta@liferemodeled.org to sign up!
