  • Collaboration and teamwork
  • Initiative & Entrepreneurship
  • Oral & written communication skills

FIERCE Communities

We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community... Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and for our own.
- Cesar Chavez

FIERCE Community brings individuals together in relationship and collaboration to restore interpersonal ownership in Detroit. As our communal sense of ownership increases in our city’s residence, citizens become more mutually accountable and responsible for our actions.

FIERCE events bridge the accountability gap between individuals and the community. We facilitate platforms, service projects, townhall meetings, and positive social networking opportunities that increase:

  • Local, global, and cultural awareness
  • Communication and collaboration
  • Civic literacy and citizenship
  • Social responsibility and ethics
