Mission Statement

The mission of the Literacy Volunteers of Southern Connecticut is to provide services at no cost to any individual who wishes to learn the English language or enhance their reading, writing, speaking and math skills necessary to lead productive lives in our community.

Description

For two decades, our non-profit organization has been building literacy in the Greater Milford and Stratford Area with our quality programs for thousands of local adults and children.
The ability to read and write is the basis for all other education; literacy is necessary for an individual to understand information, whether written or verbal. Without literacy skills-the abilities to read, write, do math, solve problems, or to access and use technology-today’s adults will struggle to take part in the world around them and fail to reach their full potential as parents, community members, and employees.
We are happy to report that our literacy volunteers are making a huge difference in our student’s lives and helping them to reach their goals.
Last year our tutors donated over 3,000 hours to more than 100 English Language Learners (ELL). Through the weekly tutoring, many of our ELL students entered into higher education or training, some were able to get a job or improve their career, some received their GED and citizenship, others voted for the first time, received a drivers license, and became more involved in their children’s community activities.
It takes great courage for many of our ELL students to walk through our door and ask for help. We match them with a tutor or put them in a group and they begin to learn the English language, some for the first time.
