Discovering Education through Student Knowledge (D.E.S.K.) is an annual community service project at Wake Forest University that that was started by two students after they identified a lack of work space in the homes of the children they tutored.
To address the problem, they created D.E.S.K. to provide restored desks for selected Old Town Elementary students. Each year, around 55 desks are painted by teams of Wake Forest student volunteers. For more information, please visit: http://groups.wfu.edu/desk/
The Office of Family Engagement provides information and support to Wake Forest parents, guardians, grandparents, and family members. The office maintains the Family Engagement Page of the Wake Forest website, which is the primary vehicle of communication with families, as well as our Facebook and Twitter presence.
