ReCity's Mission: Building Community, Accelerating Collaboration, Restoring Opportunity

$1,400, one time, helps place 1 youth on the path to family sustaining income. This is opposed to the $14,000, recurring yearly, that it would cost taxpayers if that youth stays disconnected. That is $66 million a year for 4,700 disconnected youth, and nearly $2 billion over the next 30 years.

ReCity is a co-working space for nonprofits located in the heart of downtown Durham. ReCity loves hard-working nonprofits and we are here to serve them. We come alongside and connect like-minded leaders, helping them share resources to maximize individual and collective impact. Our mission is to build a collaborative network that restores opportunity for disconnected youth and families.

There are 4,700 disconnected youth in Durham who aren't working or going to school. This is despite the fact that there are over 400 non-profits dedicated to serving this population. These 16-24 year-olds have slipped through the cracks, but we believe they're full of untapped potential. It's going to take a collaborative effort to bring that potential to life. ReCity is a response to this desire of our community. We are building infrastructure that enables organizations to leverage their unique strengths, share vital resources, and achieve common goals together.

ReCity leverages its downtown Durham one-of-a-kind mission driven space to enable non-profits, for-profits, and faith-based communities to collaboratively solve shared problems facing our youth. Uniting the work of these local leaders around a shared mission through a shared space is resulting in meaningful, systemic, and transformational change for Durham's youth and families. Our goal is to connect 1,000 youth to career paths with family sustaining income over the next 3 years. Be apart of the life change happening within ReCity Network!
