Our Mission

The Literacy Volunteers of the New River Valley (LVNRV) mission is to foster support, advocate for, and instruct adults in the New River Valley who seek opportunities to achieve greater independence through literacy.

We are a community-based literacy program that provides free one-to-one or small group tutoring in reading, writing, basic math, ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages), digital literacy and preparation for exams such as the GED and U.S. Citizenship tests.  Tutoring is held at a location and time that is convenient to both the learner and the tutor. We are a United Way Partner Agency and an affiliate member of ProLiteracy.


Illiteracy has become such a serious problem in our country that 44 million adults are now unable to read a simple story to their children
