Junior Leadership Durham is a community-wide program designed to shape the future of high school students by developing leadership skills and promoting teamwork through fostering self-confidence and personal growth.

Through active participation, students will interact with business, community and government leaders to gain an in-depth knowledge of Durham and will explore ways to contribute to their community. Class #13 will begin in September 2015 with approximately 25 to 30 selected students. There is no charge to the student but as a nonprofit organization, Junior Leadership Durham, Inc. appreciates donations from individuals and community businesses.
