The Literacy Volunteers of Randolph County was founded in 1984 to promote and foster literacy in Randolph County, WV through free volunteer teaching programs to individuals who wish to improve literacy. The organization has steadily and consistently provided tutoring in Basic Reading and writing skills to the under-educated adults of Randolph County. In addition, it has often served students from the adjoining counties when the programs in those counties were unable to provide services. Recently, the organization has added English as a Second Language classes to its services to help the increasing number of non-native English speakers to our locale.
