About the DPS Business Corps program
The mission of the DPS Volunteer Business Corps/B. O. L. D. program is to create robust partnerships between schools and area businesses and community organizations to improve academic achievement in schools throughout the district. Area businesses and community groups may forge partnerships with one or more schools in an effort to support the district’s rigorous five-year academic plan. The Detroit Public Schools Volunteer Business Corps Office assists with and provides service to all partnerships, which include new partner pairings as well as existing school partnerships that chose to continue under the Volunteer Business Corps/B. O. L. D. model. To read more or volunteer as a business, go to http://detroitk12.org/businesscorps/
