Durham nonprofits and agencies are invited to submit project proposals by Nov. 22 to the 2018 Brodhead DukeEngage-Durham program, which is an immersive summer service experience for rising sophomore, junior and senior Duke students.
Nonprofits and agencies that participate in DukeEngage-Durham host two to three Duke undergraduate students for six weeks and provide them with a sustainable, economic development-focused project, based on the organization’s programmatic needs.
There is no monetary cost to community partners that host students. Students who apply and are accepted into DukeEngage-Durham receive a stipend from DukeEngage and Duke Housing & Residence Life for the duration of the program.
The DukeEngage-Durham program focuses on economic and community development projects. Previous project topics include adult financial literacy, youth savings programs, employee training, career development and job placement.
There is the expectation that nonprofits and agencies plan for and assign a site supervisor to work with the Duke students and serve as a point of contact for DukeEngage staff.
