Mission Statement

Our Mission is to improve academic performance of under-served communities through educational services and state-of-the-art technology.


Community leaders, Leon Dixon and William Grace founded the Center on a very simple premise . . . "All of us find ourselves with discretionary time, the question is, "What are we going to do with it?" Volunteer!

The W.E.B. DuBois Learning Center started with five students and evolved from the union of a Reading program developed by William B. Grace and a Mathematics program developed by Lester "Leon" Dixon. The W.E.B. DuBois Learning Center has been a cornerstone for education in our community since 1973. The Center was founded as a supplemental educational program with specific goals designed to provide general instructional assistance to students' grades 1-12 in core content areas of Reading and Mathematics, and was subsequently expanded to include Science, Computer Technology, College Coaching and a host of enrichment programming, which most recently includes KUAW-98.5 Community Radio.

On August 26, 2016 we completed the purchase of the Milton Moore Elementary School. With more than 45,000 square feet of space, the building is structurally sound and for the first time provides us ample classroom and learning space to meet and expand our current program design. As we begin to think about and offer additional learning opportunities to prepare students and adults for 21st century opportunities, the school provides us with stability, a place to call home and a place we can prepare to leave a legacy for our children and community - The Future is in Our Hands.
