"I have never been anything but a pragmatic radical. As mayor, I want the same things I wanted as a disenfranchised radical - equality in jobs, education, housing and social environment for the people I represent." - Coleman A. Young
Coleman A. Young Foundation
Coleman A. Young was the Mayor of Detroit for two decades. He established the Coleman A. Young Foundation (CAYF) in 1982. The Mayor left office in 1993. He died four years later. CAYF is a living legacy of the late Mayor's lifetime of work. All of the assets that he earned were left to the Foundation to provide opportunities for future generations in the city that was his life.
Since 1986, the Foundation has awarded more than four million dollars to more than four hundred students.
The mission of CAYF is to develop leadership among youth through college scholarships, mentoring and other supports for personal growth and development.
