Duke University | North Carolina, United States | Advancing SDG 1 & UNAI 3
" I am incredibly honored and excited to be a Millennium Fellow because it is a great pathway towards expanding on my interests. While doing so, I will be able to work with like-minded, driven individuals who will motivate me to focus on my passions. It is a great reminder that we are all capable of promoting the change we seek, we just need the resources and climate to do so. I have faith that by the end of the program, I will have created some change in the Durham community's education system. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Duke Cares Child Care
This project is about making child care more accessible for the Durham, North Carolina community. This project is important now more than ever, in regards to the shift of remote learning. Tatum is doing this by expanding an already implemented child care program that Duke created years ago. Currently, it is unknown and underdeveloped. Tatum wants to work to further its potential.
With respect to the expansion of the already implemented program, Tatum can measure how many parents have actually registered to one of the partner child cares since contacting them. The Felow also want to measure if the program is a good fit for them. To do this, Tatum will track how long they stay with the service.
