The DukeEngage-Durham program is a comparative introduction to community-based economic development efforts in Durham, NC and its sister city of Durham, England. Participants serve both communities through structured, immersive and full-time volunteer placements with local non-profits. Participants explore the unique historic background of both communities, which continue to transition from a declining 20th-century industrial base — tobacco and textiles in North Carolina and coal mining in England — to a 21st-century knowledge-based economy.
