Detroit is a resilient city in the process of rebuilding a robust economic future. The path to great progress is only temporarily gated by the challenge that many workers face when seeking out the skills and education they need to thrive. Fortunately, some visionary companies have partnered with Penn Foster to create a path for these workers.
In 2013, battered by changes in manufacturing and a shift in the global economy, Detroit declared bankruptcy. That could have been the end of the story for the once-dynamic city, but Detroit is resilient. Passionate business, government, and community leaders immediately set to work to restore Detroit’s former greatness. Within 13 months, Detroit was out of bankruptcy and on the road to recovery.
