The W.E.B Dubois Learning Center

Community Involvement
Community Involvement is the foundation of the W.E.B. DuBois Learning Center. Believing in organized self-help, Learning Center volunteers are the backbone of the organization. Volunteers dedicated to delivering quality service to the community, spend countless hours tutoring children, organizing events, and identifying resources. Because teaching is our main service and the area which requires the most support, there are always openings for dedicated individuals. Interested persons can best support this area by volunteering a few hours per week as classroom instructors. Other important volunteer positions include administrators, consultants clerical workers, researchers, and classroom assistants.

Need (General)
There are few supplementary programs designed to meet the demand of the growing number of parents seeking tutorial assistance for their children. In talking with principals, counselors and teachers in the Kansas City School District, they invariably concurred with the need for individualized tutorial assistance and have developed a working relationship with the W.E.B. DuBois Learning Center.

The W.E.B. DuBois Learning Center has traditionally served a community that requires a high volume of educational assistance. With the current state of the economy many parents cannot afford private education or pay for tutorial services. Therefore, our program serves as an alternative for those economically disadvantaged parents who want a quality education for their children.
