About: The Durham Literacy Center empowers Durham County residents who want to improve their lives and the lives of their families by improving their literacy skills. The center has evolved from a small organization to a pivotal provider of educational services for those most in need: adults and out-of-school youth who need basic literacy and English language, computer, health and financial literacy, and job-readiness skills.
2017-18 DGIN funding will support program coordination, guest speakers/workshops and learning materials for the Youth English Language and Job Readiness Initiative. The grant will help cover staffing, volunteer recruitment and training, instructional resources and materials, and expenses associated with facilitating guest speakers and workshops.
