Community Partnerships 
This week we have an incredible community partnership opportunity available to you all through Durham Technical Community College!
Durham Technical Community College has remodeled its "7 career pathways" program to be geared towards middle schoolers! They are asking for small businesses to help them with this program by speaking to 7th graders and answering their questions.

If you or your business would be interested in partaking in this community learning opportunity, you can sign up by following these easy steps:

step 1: claim a time slot at one or both schools by writing your company/organization name in an empty "presenter slot" on the presentation schedule here.  You may claim more than one date/location/slot- just not multiple at the same time.

Please do not move/remove another presenter's name if a slot is claimed!

step 2: complete this quick registration form, so that you can get some additional information!
