Mission Statement

The mission of the Literacy Council of Northern Virginia is to teach adults the basic skills of reading, writing, speaking, and understanding English in order to empower them to participate more fully and confidently in their communities.


Established in 1962, the Literacy Council of Northern Virginia has over 50 years experience in the Fairfax community. LCNV serves nearly 1,500 beginning-level English language and literacy adult learners. LCNV's programs provide general English language instruction, targeted literacy skill development, and language for career-specific pathways through classroom, small group and tutorial instruction. Each year roughly 500 volunteers participate with the Council. They are the English teachers, tutors, testers, advocates, and behind-the-scenes administrative, event, and fundraising support that enables LCNV to help each of our adult learners advance toward their English goals.

The students are great. The organization offers frequent training sessions, if you desire, and the work is very rewarding and fun.
