Literacy Volunteers of America is a non-profit organization which provides a variety of services to help people achieve personal goals though literacy. We believe that the ability to read is essential, not only for personal growth but also for individual freedom and the preservation of a democratic society. The ability to read is important for informed citizens and democracy cannot long endue without an informed citizenry. We believe that literacy becomes increasingly important to the individual and to society as our culture becomes more complex and dependent on technology. We believe that in such a culture literacy is basic to achievement of one's potential and to the survival of our nation.
