Youth Empowerment Program

Durham Black Students' Network (DBSN) aims to connect Black/marginalized youth from the Durham region with resources within the community for personal and professional development through a variety of leadership opportunities.


We work to provide transferable life skills, experiences and strive to cultivate motivation which all work advance personal growth to promote future success.

We strive to ignite the passion, strength, and confidence within a marginalized group toward an equitable future.

We work on rebuilding genuine connections and networks to create a renewed cycle of community support.

We strive to promote discipline, perseverance, and consistency that converge to lead to better choices and ultimately, a successful future.

"It is here; in our community. It is us; in our skin, It is now; in our lives, It is now; that we rise.
