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 (Basic Literacy, ESOL, Digital Literacy, Basic Math) at a location and time that is convenient to both the learner and the student. We are a United Way/United Fund Partner Agency and an affiliate member of ProLiteracy.
More than 20 percent of adults read at or below a fifth grade level - far below the level needed to earn a living wage.
