College and Career Readiness Program


The Durham Literacy Center's College and Career Readiness program is designed to assist its clients with meeting the growing demands of the workforce. Individuals must possess credentials and abilities that will allow them to gain opportunities that will improve their lives as well as become contributing members of society. The CCR program is designed to equip all students served by the DLC with the knowledge and skills needed to move forward in obtaining new or better employment and the ability to pursue vocational or higher education opportunities.


The Durham Literacy Center's College and Career Readiness Program is designed with student success in mind. We work with the DLC's three core programs to integrate career readiness topics into their curricula. We also assist student with the development of individual career or post-secondary education plans, documents, action plans, and skill building so they can take the next steps toward fulfilling their goals. Activities include: resume writing, interview prep, college and employment searches, self discovery using inventories, and more! We also connect students to career opportunities and workforce development partners in the community. 


Stay tuned for information about Winter 2023 workshops!
