Volunteer to help Flint kids

Are you a Flint Expatriate looking for a way to help Flint? The Flint Club has a pen pal mentoring program that will match you with a kid in Flint. I've signed up and there are still plenty of spots available, but they need to fill them quickly.

The Youth of Genesee County NEED YOU

Flint Club's Pen Pal mentor program is still in need of 50 mentors. We are asking you to assist us as we strive to recruit individuals that are willing to invest ten minutes a week in an elementary student.

If you are interested please contact Sonyita Scales, Program Director via email at or by calling 810-233-5468.

Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
