About Us

Grow & Lead provides organizations with expertise, training and resources so that all youth can thrive in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

Our focus on positive youth development leads us to serve all regional nonprofits. A strong nonprofit community is essential to creating a healthy environment for youth. Nonprofit organizations play a key role in our region—serving children and families and making this a great place to live.

GLCYD supports these organizations by providing skill building workshops, tailored consulting and training, and spreading the word on new ideas, technology and other resources.
