2019 Summer Youth Program

World Relief Durham's Third Annual Summer Enrichment Program for refugee and immigrant youth (K-12).  The focus of this four week program is to provide enriching experiences in art, music, exercise, education and general summertime fun for immigrant children in Durham. Volunteers are vital for the success of this program--providing supervision, transportation help, relational engagement, and much more.

The program will be held from 10am-3pm Monday through Friday between July 15th and August 9th at Jordan High School and will include immigrant children from all over the world. We are excited to invest in the lives of these children and hope you'll join us!
