UpStart with Jordyn Lexton

An up-close and inspiring discussion series about solutions in context.

Jordyn Lexton is a 2015 Echoing Green Fellow and founder of Drive Change, a fellowship program that uses a food truck to provide workplace experience and continued education to formerly incarcerated young people ages 18-25. By the end of their fellowship, participants have built workplace skills, gained professional experience, and are infused with a sense of self-worth.

Jordyn was joined in conversation by Devita Davison, executive director of FoodLab Detroit.
