Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Our mission is to achieve adult literacy in Maricopa County by providing educational services to adults who desire to learn to read, obtain the High School Equivalency (HSE) diploma by preparing them for the General Educational Development (GED©) exam, or communicate in English. LVMC strives to empower adults in our community to become better candidates for sustainable employment, participate in higher education or job training, and improve their quality of life.
We serve approximately 1,000 students every year, providing more than 80,000 hours of instruction in our various programs. Our students range from age 16 to 80; 20% of our students are age 24 and younger, 63% are women, and 79% are underemployed or unemployed.
The majority of LVMC’s students receive instruction by attending one of LVMC’s two Learning Centers. Our centers offer comprehensive services including computer-based instruction, small classes and one-to-one tutoring. Additionally, LVMC offers a distance learning program directed at individuals who do not live near an adult education center or whose work schedules prevent them from attending a learning center.
LVMC’s staff includes nine instructors, a part-time data entry specialist, and a director. In addition, we have over 50 volunteers that provide invaluable help assisting students with the different software programs, and tutoring on specific subject matter.
