Adult Digital Literacy Services available In NRV!
Digital literacy is the knowledge, skills, and behaviors used in a broad range of digital devices such as smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktop PCs, all of which are seen as network rather than computing devices.
LVNRV provides tutoring for adult students to help improve their skills in using technology to solve problems and communicate with others, while increasing their digital literacy skills and access to technology.
LVNRV offers ESL instruction in classes ranging from beginner – for people with little or no experience with English – to high-intermediate.
Classes are free; however, registration is required.
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 tutor. We are a United Way/United Fund 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
