invitation for YIP draft night game

The University of Michigan Youth Impact Program will be held July 11-22. In addition to the two-week program, there will be touchpoints for the youth during the year.
The football program identified young men in Detroit not only because of its proximity to the institution but because of the significant need that exists there combined with the passion of the football leadership to serve this cause.
