By 2020, 67% of North Carolina jobs will require some post-secondary education. However, we know that many students of all ages in our community face significant barriers to achieving certificates and degrees, including hunger, homelessness, rising tuition, and a changing job market.
We will focus on highlighting the experiences of college students in our community, the opportunities offered by their school, and the barriers they face in completing their degree.
Durham Technical Community College
Join Triangle Community Foundation and Durham Technical Community College for a discussion with current students and administrators about common challenges, existing solutions, and how you can help. Hear directly fromstudents and administrators, and also take a tour of the Durham Tech Campus Harvest Food Pantry, a needed resource serving nearly 100 students each week. Through this event, we hope attendees will gain a more complete picture of the student experience as they pursue post-secondary education as well as concrete ideas for funding education and supporting students.
