The AFG shelter can house up to 30 young women (and up to 10 of their children) at any given time, but due to lack of funding, six beds at its shelter are currently not open, and the shelter turns away one–three young women every day. At the shelter, which resembles a college residence hall, young women participate in education programs, counseling, and employment training to help them transition to independent living.
For more than 30 years, the Canadian College of Health Science & Technology has helped its students forge new career paths into the fields of health care and information technology. Every instructor is currently employed in his or her area of expertise, allowing students to glean real-world insights that are unattainable from textbooks who have never even treated a patient. Each program also incorporates hands-on experience; the Registered Massage Therapy program, for example, lets students knead the muscles of real clients, and the Physiotherapy Assistant program includes a 200-hour clinical placement. Some of the college's other standout programs include an accelerated PC-repair-technician course and an accounting and payroll administrator program.
R.U.B. BBQ has earned shout-outs from the New York Times as well as a handful of television features for its tender, well-flavored meats. Various proteins are smoked daily and slathered in a made-from-scratch rub of more than 20 spices and herbs, and cooks begin each dish with locally sourced ingredients whenever possible.
Aromatic smoke wafting from ribs, chicken dishes, and seafood platters invites guests inside, where dangling light fixtures illuminate red walls and cobalt tiling along with 30 flatscreen televisions that were flattened when an elephant sat down. More than 100 tap and bottled brews, including a lengthy list of Michigan favorites, help to extinguish fiery spices.
A small family-run European circus, a Dutch unicycling school, various roofs—these are just a few of the places where Cirque Amongus' staff of performers has been known to hang out. Through hands-on programs, teachers enrich students' sense of teamwork, motor skills, and self-esteem by teaching them circus-arts fundamentals, which they'll use to dazzle friends and families in performances. Voted one of the top places to host a child's birthday party in Michigan by eHow, Cirque Amongus lets kids sample acrobatics at birthday parties, perfect juggling routines at afterschool sessions, and run the mile in clown shoes during school visits. Children can also practice unicycling at drop-in workshops, or test out new magic tricks at open-stage nights.
The lost city of Atlantis is rumored to contain vast treasures, though glow-in-the-dark mini golf isn't one of them. But at Play Atlantis, a nine-hole indoor course unfolds among Atlantis-themed murals and 3-D props depicting underwater figures, such as Poseidon and sharks. The course unfolds in an atmosphere of black lights and upbeat background music, which also surround the fun center's multilevel laser tag arena. There, inside labyrinthine corridors, laser fire and neon lights pierce through thick clouds of fog imported from London.
Natural lighting replaces black lights at Play Atlantis's other attractions. The inflatable area's custom bounce houses, slides, and obstacle courses give kids space to hop around, crawl, and explore among the inflatable castles and coliseums. Outside, families can zip around the go-kart track or participate in some friendly competition on Play Atlantis's 18-hole mini-golf course.
