Hope for the Youth in Durham

The Durham VOICE (November 20, 2013) -- A new initiative, Made in Durham, will educate and train youth to improve their employability. Although it is still in the planning stages, they have conducted research and included community and corporate stake-holders to design a program that will help youth who are on-track, behind, or disconnected.

“We work in communities, with communities, to help community leaders research and learn about the real problem, the real situations, conditions in their communities that they might not really realize and to look at the data, the numbers…and then we help them find the solution that they think is right for their community,” said Richard Hart, communications director at MDC.
