Literacy Volunteers of Rochester, Inc

Provide one-to-one assistance for individuals seeking help with learning computer skills, and resolving challenges like web access, completing online forms or applications, and other computer-essential tasks.

We have been working with libraries and education partners to offer a helping hand to community members who do not have consistent access and familiarity with digital technology. Our mission is to help our community gain confidence and understanding of online and software resources. Our customers become better informed and better connected with our help. We currently have volunteers in 6 community locations and we continue to expand annually. We have started a new online Live Chat option to assist individuals in and around our community remotely.
