Program Overview

We are a non-profit adult literacy center located in West Palm Beach, FL. The center is open to anyone over the age of 18 who wants to learn to read or speak English. Our programs are designed to enable adults and families to acquire the listening, speaking,reading, writing and technology skills they need to take advantage of opportunities in their environment and to participate in the transformation of their own lives and of their society.

Our efforts are centered in the spirit of peace and justice, and the worth of the individual.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to tutor adults in need of basic reading skills or spoken English language skills in a community that promotes learning and a spirit of family.

Hours of operation: M - Th 8:30 AM to 8 PM; Fridays 10 AM - 6 PM

Cost info: Students who are able to pay for textbooks can buy them from us at cost. Those who cannot afford to pay receive free textbooks.

Program’s Demographics/Metrics

Our students come from across Palm Beach County, Florida. Many have come from their original homes in Haiti, Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Colombia, Peru, and other countries in Central and South America. Others have grown up in the U.S., but need help with reading and writing skills. All adult learners are welcome at DePorres Place!
