Our Vision

All Durham youth will complete a postsecondary credential and begin a rewarding career by age 25.

Roughly 40 percent of Durham’s young people may not be on track to complete high school, achieve a postsecondary credential of some kind or gain employment by the time they are 25.

Who We Are

Made in Durham is a community partnership of engaged educators, business, government, nonprofits, youth and young adults aligning their resources and initiatives to create an education-to-career system that better equips Durham’s youth for career and life success and builds a stronger local workforce.

Made in Durham partners are collaborating to create an education-to-career system that enables every young person in Durham to:

Graduate from high-school

Engage in work experiences that prepare them for a career

Complete a postsecondary credential

Secure living-wage work
