Thank you for helping us reach our fundraising goal!
Literacy Volunteers was founded in late 1983 and is still the only local organization offering free tutoring services to adults.
We’re happy to report that thanks to the generosity of supporters like you, we met our fundraising goal. With your amazing help, we raised $15,000, which will be matched by a grant from the Perry Foundation of Charlottesville!
Literacy Volunteers of Charlottesville/Albemarle (LVCA) provides one-on-one, confidential tutoring in basic literacy and English as a second language to adults living or working in Charlottesville and Albemarle County. This service is provided by our talented volunteer tutors. In 2013 we will celebrate our 30th anniversary of service to our community!
Our volunteer tutors are the heart of our program. Becoming a tutor will enable you to make a profound difference in a person’s life.
