Power of Partnership Summit

Friday, Nov. 3, 2017 | 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
21c Museum Hotel, Durham, N.C.

Business people, educators, government agencies and nonprofits are collaborating in an unprecedented way to connect work and learning for Durham youth, which research shows increases their chance for school and career success.

Join us as we recognize and celebrate our collective achievements in building an education-to-career system for all of Durham’s young people. Learn how you can help move this initiative forward in the coming year.

Together, we can ensure that every young person in our community graduates from high school, earns a post-secondary credential and enters a rewarding career by age 25.

Our success can ensure a strong talent pipeline for our companies and a prosperous future for us all!
