What is Let’s Detroit?

Regional businesses indicate the number one issue they have is attracting and retaining talent.  Currently 36 percent of graduates leave Michigan within one year of graduation. Let’s Detroit was created by the Detroit Regional Chamber to increase retention of graduates fleeing the state.

Using a website, texting communication, and social media engagement, Let’s Detroit aims to achieve three main objectives:

  • Improve the narrative around Detroit and Southeast Michigan.
  • Increase graduates in Southeast Michigan.
  • Cultivate an innovative, engaged and culture-focused business community to drive economic prosperity.

What makes Let’s Detroit unique is its volunteer Ambassadors. These individuals offer young talent authentic connections through events, social media and “Text a Detroiter.”

Let’s Detroit was launched in September 2018 with the goal to increase retention of college graduates by 1% each year, helping achieve the Chamber’s goal of increasing postsecondary education attainment in the region to 60 percent by 2030.

How Businesses Get Involved

  • Leverage Let’s Detroit when recruiting talent for your team.
  • Recruit young professionals in your company to become ambassadors for “Text a Detroiter.”
  • Become a Let’s Detroit Partner and leverage the on and offline platform to meet your company’s talent recruitment and branding objectives.
