Amidst the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, Duke University’s Office of Durham & Community Affairs supported the community and students by connecting undergraduate and graduate students with nonprofit and community organizations. Student experiences were remote and lasted from two to eight weeks with a focus on specific deliverables for the organization. Rebound was proud to partner with Duke University in creating meaningful collaborations between students and the Durham community. Our summer opportunity students were Yenashi Castillo Tristani and Caroline Kassir. Read more about their experience on our blog.
