LVM Literacy Unlimited at Framingham Library is always looking for volunteers to become literacy tutors. We have two types of tutoring programs for students: ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) and ABE (Adult Basic Education).

We offer information sessions; come and check out the program before you register. The next virtual information session is August 24th, 2022 from 6:00-7:00 pm (Zoom).

LVM Literacy Unlimited is free, operates year-round, and is flexible in scheduling, making it a good option for students with different learning styles and schedules.
