About

One out of six adults in New Jersey can't read to his or her child, understand food or prescription labels, or write a note to a teacher or friend! Be the reason they can! Become a Literacy Volunteer by attending our 15 hour training. Literacy Volunteers offers small group English basic skills and English as a Second language tutoring to adults at no cost.

LVACA tutors provide reading, writing, comprehension conversational English, job-preparedness, health and financial literacy, citizenship-preparedness, and survival skills instruction.

Tutoring is offered at the times and locations that are convenient for both the tutor and the student.
