Made in Durham is a collaboration between education, business, youth-serving nonprofits, and young people across Durham. The ultimate goal is for Durham youth to graduate high school, earn a postsecondary degree or credential, and begin a rewarding career by 25.
Career is the optimal word for Made in Durham as they emphasize career awareness, exploration, preparation, and then training along a continuum.
