David Miechiels is the volunteer manager for the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy. He oversees the Conservancy’s volunteer program through recruitment, organization,  communication, and retention.

Prior to joining the Conservancy, David was a public school teacher in Metro Detroit. While teaching, he was involved in a number of committees working toward diversity, equity, and inclusion in the education system. He earned his B.M. in Music Education from Michigan State University, where he taught community music classes and worked to provide educational programs for local youth.

When not on the Riverfront, David enjoys reading, staying active, and making music. He spent his summer learning to bake and has run two marathons. David lives in Detroit's Islandview Neighborhood, and is excited to be a part of the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy and its robust community of volunteers.
