Dynamic Speaker for 2nd Annual Get in the Game Luncheon

  1. Updates

Faithful, focused, and fearless are just three words that describe David McGhee. As a former program director for Big Brothers Big Sisters, a current professor, and founder of 16th Letter Consulting, a nonprofit and leadership development consulting firm, McGhee has built a national reputation as a servant leader who labors diligently to improve the quality of life for marginalized people.

Proficient at building key relationships with nonprofit agencies, David has extensive experience in program development, along with securing local, state, and federal grants. David has more than 10 years of hands-on, practical experience working with youth and families. He is a well-respected, highly sought-after speaker who brings about change.

A product of Flint, Michigan’s unforgiving streets, David relates to urban youth culture in ways many can’t. He is indeed a much-needed change agent for children, youth and families – especially African American boys.

His work with youth has been widely recognized throughout the country – recently being featured in the September 2012 issue of Black Enterprise Magazine.

David received his bachelor’s degree in public administration & public policy from Oakland University and a master’s degree in leadership from Central Michigan University.

We are very excited that David will be joining us for the

2nd Annual Get in the Game Luncheon at Ford Field on March 27th!
