Receive training to become a literacy volunteer!
Literacy Volunteers of Charlottesville/Albemarle 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. Our talented tutors work closely with our students to help them succeed.
We're looking for more dedicated volunteers to tutor adults in reading, writing, and speaking English. Many of our students are refugees and immigrants working hard to establish themselves within our community. With your help, they can gain the valuable skills they need to be better workers, consumers, parents, and citizens.
No teaching experience required. We train you to tutor an adult student in reading, writing, and English acquisition skills. Most of our tutor/student pairs meet for two hours a week at a mutually convenient time and place.
We ask for a year-long commitment. As a tutor, you will receive a rewarding experience knowing that you’ve helped someone achieve their goals and be more integrated into our community.
