Literacy Volunteers of Charlottesville/Albemarle

Literacy Volunteers of Charlottesville/Albemarle (LVCA) is a nonprofit organization that promotes adult literacy through equitable, inclusive, free, confidential, one-to-one English and Citizenship tutoring. 

We believe that all adults should be able to understand, speak, read, write, and communicate in English to fully participate in our community.

Train to Become a Literacy Volunteer

We are recruiting compassionate and enthusiastic volunteers to tutor adults in English speaking, reading, and writing. Additionally, many of our students need support preparing for their U.S. Citizenship interviews.

If you would like to provide one-to-one instruction to adults in our community, we invite you to attend a New Tutor Training. No teaching experience is required, only a desire to help learners reach their educational goals. We will offer both in-person and virtual training sessions this fall. 

In October, we will offer an in-person training option.
