The Literacy Council of Northern Virginia (LCNV) is a nonprofit organization that teaches adults throughout Northern Virginia the basic skills of reading, writing, speaking, and understanding English, so they may participate more fully and confidently in their communities. The LCNV's approach is to involve volunteers as the English instructors for our adult learners. With LCNV training and support, volunteers help their neighbors directly. The Council has a dire need for more volunteers in and around Lorton.
Volunteers can serve as tutors, who work one-on-one with a learner, or as classroom teachers or aides who work with groups of 10-15 adults at a time. We also offer many non-teaching opportunities, from outreach, to helping out in our office, to supporting special events. If you are interested to promote adult literacy in Lorton, we'll find something that fits your interests!
Join us on December 10 at the Lorton Library from 7-9pm to learn about the Council's work and how you can help someone in your neighborhood develop the English skills neccessary to succeed!
