The mission of Literacy Volunteers of America-West Hudson, Inc. is to promote increased literacy and conversational English skills to adult students in Kearny, Harrison, and East Newark, NJ. Student-centered instruction occurs through the effective use of volunteers, the provision of support services for volunteers and students, and collaboration with individuals, groups, or organizations desiring to foster increased literacy. These services are offered to students free of charge.
We recruit and train volunteers and then match them with adults in our community needing help in basic literacy and/or English speaking skills.
