DETROIT - The 23rd annual inspirational prayer breakfast which kicks off the intensive planning stages of the upcoming 37th annual Metro Detroit Youth Day (MDYD) which draws more than 35,000 area youth will be held June 14th at MGM Grand Detroit Hotel.

The breakfast will begin at 8:30 a.m. Friday, June 14th at MGM Grand Detroit Hotel located at 1777 Third St., Detroit, MI 48226.

“The theme this year will emphasize the need for greater safety for our kids by stopping crime and bullying, and emphazing ways to reduce obesity and how to become an entrepreneur and own your own business”, said Ed Deeb, founder and chairman of the Youth Day event, and founder and chairman of Michigan Youth Appreciation Foundation (MYAF). “The kids are our future. Now more than ever the community needs to rally around them to save their lives and prepare them for the future. We also want to build a spiritual net around them to help our youth build our communities and become future leaders.

“Most importantly, we want to keep our kids in school and keep them in Michigan after graduation from college, “ Deeb added. “We must come together now more than ever to protect, respect, educate and support our young people.”

The 37th annual Youth Day event itself which will be held at Belle Isle, July 10 will also feature College Row which brings more than 16 colleges and universities to the event to talk with the youngsters. There will also be more than 50 attractions for the youth to participate in, a free lunch for the youth and volunteers, and a Metro Youth Day Idol Contest for youngsters who will perform by singing or dancing.

Also, several individuals and corporate sponsors will be honored for their participation in and support of this colorful annual event at the breakfast. Minister Antoine Jackson is the key speaker.

“When we started Metro Youth Day 36 years ago it was to instill peace in the community following altercations,” said Deeb. “It is truly a success story about people and organizations working together for harmonious relationships and a better community. We must continue to work together to also protect our youth and inspire them to do the most good.”

Theme for the 2019 Metro Detroit Youth Day: we inspire our youth to do the most good, and be our future leaders.”

Co-chairing the Prayer Breakfast this year are John Ambrose of Michigan State University and Keith Bennett of Goodwill Industries.
