Event description
Our one-of-a-kind leadership returns for another year of meaningful programming to propel young men of color in Durham to success.

About this event

The Durham Success Summit returns for its third edition on September 18, 2021 determined to deliver professional development opportunities for young men of color. The Durham Success Summit is helping to level the playing field by empowering college-aged men, 18-24 years old, to take the critical first steps in their unique paths to success.

In just one day, Summit participants can explore career opportunities, cultivate meaningful relationships with peers and mentors from a variety of industries, and gain the confidence to start turning their vision into reality.

Since 2019, the Durham Success Summit has helped more than 200 young men create a foundation for their success and develop a network of champions to support their goals. We are thankful for a host of fantastic partners who make this possible, including NCCU's Male Achievement Center and African American Male Institute.

Previous speakers have included:

  • Gina Loften, Microsoft
  • DeDreana Freeman, Durham City Council
  • Pierce Freelon, Durham City Council
  • Nolan Smith, Duke Men's Basketball
  • Shamieka Rhinehart, North Carolina District Judge
  • Brandon Miller, Author and Personal Branding Expert
  • McKinley Nelson, Founder of Project Swish Chicago
  • Sam O'Babatunde, Miami HEAT
  • Kareek Best, Philadelphia 76ers

...and many more! You never know who could drop by.
