Building Self-Esteem for Detroit Youth

When: Monday, October 15

Where: Detroit, MI

Our next stop was to visit a longtime friend of The Rite Aid Foundation, the Boys Hope Girls Hope Homes of Detroit. Every BHGH Home has its own personality, and this home was no exception as it serves youth who have big dreams and undeniable character.

We brought with us 30 Teen Health & Beauty Kits filled with products focusing on teen health and personal hygiene that the teens were excited to open and put to use. Our team and the scholars held a discussion about career paths – our associates and pharmacists spoke about how they chose their career paths, and the teens described their dream jobs.

After a healthy dinner from Subway, our RA50 team members were surprised by a variety of musical performances from the teens.
