The kickoff and registration starts at 9 a.m. Saturday at Mumford on Detroit's northwest side. Registration will continue until 1 p.m.

Schoolhouse in the D is for Detroit-area youth ages 8 to 18. Courses will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays and students will receive free lunch. The program concludes with an interactive commencement.
