Supporting DurhamYouth Work Initiative: One Intern’s Experience
Made in Durham is a community partnership of that helps equip Durham’s young people for career and life success and builds a stronger local workforce. McKim & Creed is proud to support Made in Durham by mentoring young people through a summer internship program. Through this initiative, 200 Durham youth learn firsthand about the world of work during six-week paid internships with more than 70 local employers.
High school student Victor Chi thinks he’d like to be an engineer, and this summer he gained some real-world experience at McKim & Creed. The image at right is an excerpt from the Made in Durham Newsletter (September 2017), in which Victor tells his story.
