In an effort to remove obstacles blocking student success, we partnered with Detroit Lions linebacker Tahir Whitehead to motivate students to lead a healthy lifestyle by tackling some of the obstacles that get in the way.

We joined forces with Tahir to hold a series of events at MDHHS Community Schools on select Tuesdays. Tahir donated his free time to help students in Detroit understand the ways we can help them and their families tackle obstacles that impede success and their long-term self-sufficiency. These events touch on health, fitness and succeeding in school. MDHHS Community Schools have community school coordinators working with Pathways to Potential caseworkers known as success coaches to make sure community resources are available to assist students and families.
