DESK brings local elementary school children to campus each spring to create inspiring, colorful study spaces for students in their homes.

A longstanding campus tradition, DESK was started in 2001 in partnership with Old Town Elementary after two WFU students identified a lack of workspace in the homes of the children they were tutoring. Today it includes four participating schools – Old Town Elementary, Cook Literacy Model School, Kimberly Park Elementary, and the Wake Forest University Freedom School – and serves as a fundraiser to support local education equity initiatives.
