Leading businesses, government agencies, nonprofits and educators across Durham are collaborating in unprecedented ways to help local youth connect work and learning, which research shows can keep them in school and on track for careers.
Regional employers are invited to learn how by joining Made in Durham partners for the inaugural Power of Partnership Summit.
Meredythe Holmes, executive director of Made in Durham, will update the community on the state of the partnership. Keynote speaker Kristy Teskey, executive director of the John M. Belk Foundation, will speak on “The Power of Partnership.”
Made in Durham is a community partnership of educators, businesses, government, nonprofits, youth and young adults mobilized around a shared vision that all of Durham's youth will complete high school and a postsecondary credential and begin a rewarding career by the age of 25.
