EDCI partners with the Durham Literacy Center to help empower East Durham parents, caregivers, and community members who are interested in developing their literacy skills.
Twice a year, low-cost English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) classes are offered at locations in the EDCI Zone with childcare provided. Adults ages 18 and older are placed in leveled small group English classes led by trained volunteer instructors. The classes cover speaking, listening, reading, and writing on real-world topics such as health, transportation, housing, employment, shopping, and education. Childcare is provided at EDCI ESOL classes.
