Our students at NDEC - Lawrence hail from many parts of the globe, bringing together a wonderful mix of culture, language, tradition, and aspiration.
Adult literacy and the development of self-esteem provide students with the life skills that support family growth, employment opportunities and community participation.
The students want to better their lives by becoming citizens, getting a drivers license, buying a house, or getting a new job, but they don’t always know where to begin. We show them how to take manageable steps toward creating the life they want in this country.
The Notre Dame Education Center-Lawrence (NDEC) is a community of learning where low-income adults are empowered to improve and enrich their lives and the lives of their families in an environment that is welcoming, respectful and dignified. Through access to quality direct services, collaboration and advocacy for positive change, NDEC provides goal-oriented education, skills training, language and literacy development, enrichment opportunities and support services. NDEC assists and supports adult learners to achieve their next steps and reach their full potential as productive, contributing workers in the community and in society.
