Can you imagine being unable to read this website, a street sign, instructions on a bottle of medicine, or even a note from your child's teacher? Have you ever wanted to make a real difference in the community? By volunteering with the Literacy Council of Northern Virginia, you can change the lives of adults who want to develop basic reading, writing, and English speaking skills.

With the help of volunteers who serve as teachers, class aides, tutors and testers, the Literacy Council is able to teach hundreds of English language learners in Falls Church and at 14 other sites across Northern Virginia. Prior teaching experience is ideal but not required to get involved -- training, curriculum, and support will be provided.
