Durham Literacy Center



The Durham Literacy Center was established in 1985 by a small but committed group of volunteers as a non-profit, community-based organization to address the overwhelming literacy needs of Durham County. By actively monitoring and assessing Durham’s continuously changing community, the DLC has evolved from a small organization to a pivotal provider of educational services for those most in need: adults who lack basic literacy skills, recent immigrants, and out-of-school youth (ages 16 to 24).

Our mission is to empower Durham County residents who want to improve their lives and the lives of their families by improving their literacy skills. Since 1985, we have served more than 13,000 people through our Adult Literacy, English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), and Youth Education Programs.
