Literacy Volunteers of Charlottesville/Albemarle

Literacy Volunteers of Charlottesville/Albemarle (LVCA) addresses low literacy and undereducation among adults in our region through free, individualized reading, writing and English language instruction. Our mission is to help individuals become better workers, consumers, neighbors, citizens, and parents primarily through one-to-one tutoring.

We imagine a community where every adult has the literacy and English language skills he or she needs to live a fulfilling and productive life in Charlottesville and Albemarle County. Literacy Volunteers strives to provide foundational education to support our students as they embark on workforce and educational paths that will help them secure better jobs and become more fully involved in community life.


Wordplay, Rescheduled for Sept. 30

Out of an abundance of caution, and to support social distancing, the staff and board are postponing the event until Wednesday, September 30. If you have already registered your team and paid for tickets, they will be valid on that date. We will miss seeing you at the Paramount on April 1. On a positive note, we can still take team registrations for Wordplay 2020 to be held on September 30 because we still have room for a few more teams!
