Please join the Durham Literacy Center in raising money for our literacy programs!
The mission of the Durham Literacy Center (DLC) is to empower Durham County residents who want to enrich their lives by improving their literacy skills.
Since 1985, the DLC has...
• Provided literacy services to more than 12,000 Durham residents
• Trained more than 1,200 volunteer tutors
• Served more than 100 families in our bilingual family literacy program
• Provided critical education to refugees from more than 20 countries
At the DLC, every dollar counts:
• $100 will buy instructional materials for one ESOL class
• $75 will buy buy books for one teen GED student
• $50 will buy instructional materials for one Adult Literacy pair
• $25 will buy training materials for one volunteer tutor
• $20 will buy a 1-month bus pass for one student
The DLC was established in 1985 by a small but committed group of volunteers who recognized that literacy was at the heart of prosperity, health, and community engagement. Over the last 25 years, the DLC has evolved into a pivotal nonprofit provider of educational services for those most in need: adults who lack basic literacy skills, recent immigrants, and out-of-school teenagers.
