Service & Social Action

An Office of Campus Life & Leadership


deskDiscovering 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.

This year’s event will be held on Tuesday, April 15th.
