Leaders in Literacy

The Durham Literacy Center works to empower Durham County residents who want to improve their lives and the lives of their families by improving their literacy skills. The Forest at Duke, through residents, team members and funding, has a longstanding partnership with the Durham Literacy Center and it’s students.

For over 30 years, the center has provided adults with tuition free classes. Offering classes at no cost is a cornerstone of what makes the center’s work so effective. In one year, grant funds from The Forest at Duke provided instruction to approximately 70 older adult-students, empowering them to reach their full potential in all areas of life, home, and community.

Sponsoring tuition is just one way The Forest community contributes. Residents within our community serve on the board, volunteer their time and give to support the Durham Literacy Center. The Forest is incredibly proud to be a part of what makes the center our area’s leading independent literacy organization, and we look forward to many more years to come.
