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.
