(WJBK) - The DOPE Project (TDP) is not a typical boring lecture, or a traditional class, it instead allows kids  to interact with  business leaders and  professionals as if  they  are in the  real workplace. TDP will incorporate fun workshops, projects and  internships led  by a network of  young, successful business leaders to instill life, entrepreneurial and  leadership skills.

With one project done the DOPE Project will launch The Detroit version 2.0, that will be free for Teens 9th- 12th Grades held on Sunday afternoons at The Music Hall Center For The Performing Arts beginning Sunday, July 27th at 3PM, with subsequent classes the next 3 following Sundays- and finishing on Thursday, August 21st.

The catch is- all of the  "guest teachers" will be young business owners and professionals who are "cool" and  more relatable to  the  kids.   Walker will also utilize his relationships with companies such as, Hershel Backpack, McDonalds, Meijer  and  Vita- min  Water  to sponsor prizes for  the  kids

Some of the  workshops he has created include 'The Art  of  Selling," in which  the  kids  use  the  Five  P's (Product, Packaging, Place,  Price, Promotion) to actually launch a real  product they  must  sell, and  "The Gift of  Gab," in which  the  kids  must  learn  how  to get  what  they  want  by simply  talking (whether it's  a job interview, negotiating to buy something, trying to sell something).

 The project is open to the first 20 students. Visit http://www.thedopeproject.com/ for more information and to purchase a t-shirt.
