Center for Success

As a Detroit-based supplier, Amerisource strives to remain a committed partner within the communities we serve. We achieve this by not only prioritizing customers’ requirements and expectations, but also looking for opportunities to continually invest in the welfare of Detroit and our branch locations.

Amidst relocating our headquarters to the heart of Detroit in the former Packard Marine Engine Plant, we actively pursue relationships with local nonprofit organizations—the Literacy Program of the Center for Success (CFS) Detroit location being housed within our very own HQ building.

About Our CFS Efforts:

Amerisource is a proud supporter and founding partner of the Center for Success Detroit location, which serves as the national office of the Center for Success Network.

Center for Success Network is a nonprofit organization committed to impacting youth in underserved areas through education and exposure to social interactions and activities. With nearly 50 students, 1st through 6th grade, participating twice a week in the free after school program in Detroit, those enrolled benefit from individualized mentoring, measured academic improvements, as well improved self-confidence and socio-emotional outcomes.

With more than 50 members of the community trained on a volunteer basis to mentor these students one-on-one, CFS leverages meaningful interactions between youth and their community, each mentor offering encouragement and support that helps students to succeed academically and beyond.

Since the program’s inception in 2015, students have achieved an average of 2.3 years of reading growth each per program year! Students are also provided transportation, meals, and a variety of fun activities that keep them engaged.

The core belief is that by exposing, educating, engaging, and empowering youth in non-traditional formats, CFS and its community partners will help students recognize and achieve their greatest potential, providing education and empowerment to pursue their dreams and live successfully.
