Paul Thomas

Internship Program Lead, High School Internship Program, Detroit

Paul Thomas Joined Urban Alliance in September of 2022. Paul received his bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Africology/African American Studies from Eastern Michigan University. Before joining the organization, Mr. Thomas worked with youth to empower them to strive toward greatness. Paul believes that no matter the obstacle, they can overcome anything with hard work and persistence. Paul was a mentor for Eastern University’s Opportunity program. His objective was to work with a group of young men who did not have the academic requirements to enter the University through the standard admissions process. However, after working with these young men throughout the summer, they were granted admission into the University after completing a six-week intensive summer course to ease them into the collegiate work setting. Paul brings experience in mentorship, education, and advocacy for young men and women of color.
