The Detroit Magic Child Development is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit youth organization that provides a eight-week spring , summer and fall program. We service communities in the Metro Detroit area. Most of the services we provide are year round in which we implement after school programs for grades K thru 12. Since 1998 we have served youth ages 6-17 in organized sports and academic programs.
We believe in uplifting young people to reach their full potential by encouraging them to embrace who they are and equipping them with the knowledge and tools to
help mold their future and change the world.
The Detroit Magic's mission is to work together with churches, parents, schools and other organizations in the community, to provide a nurturing environment that will build through sports, promotes academic achievement: self esteem and enhance the emotional, social and physical development of each child. Our goal is to continue to provide recreational and educational programs that will motivate, instill positive behavior and develop future leaders, to enhance social skills, provide a safe haven and increase our youth academic proficiency.
The Detroit Magic Child development organization was first established as a youth basketball team in collaboration with the J.B.L (junior basketball League Association) in 1992 . Founded by Steven R. Dye Sr. in 1998, DMCD's beginning stages of programming focused on recreational activities as it's primary purpose, however, through years of development the program has expanded to include mentoring, tutoring, conflict resolution, anger management, youth volunteer, etiquette, life skills, MEAP preparation, computer training, arts and crafts, and martial arts.
