Families of Future Warriors

Thank you for attending!

On April 23, 2022, Wayne State hosted Families of Future Warriors — a day of fun and exploration designed for children (ages 8 to 15) with one or more incarcerated parent. Kids and their families learned through hands-on activities, explored campus and enjoyed lunch at Wayne State's Towers Cafe. Interested in future events or partnerships with Wayne State?
