Literacy Volunteers of Greater Hartford, a private non-profit organization, has provided adult literacy services to the Greater Hartford community since 1972. Our cutting edge, student-centered, technology enriched programs teach nearly 900 adults each year the reading and writing, English proficiency, math, high school completion, citizenship, and job readiness skills they need to succeed. An accredited affiliate of ProLiteracy Worldwide, we serve 20 Greater Hartford towns, and rely on public and private support to expand our reach and meet the vast need for literacy services.
The mission of Literacy Volunteers of Greater Hartford is to create a community of fully literate adults through student centered instruction that catalyzes career readiness and advancement. Volunteer tutors and students come together in small-group classes to learn reading, writing, English, math, and computer skills. Students gain the basic skills that are at the foundation of a more independent, secure life. Tutors gain the satisfaction of knowing they've helped to change their students' lives for the better.
We offer a variety of classes for adults at our literacy centers in Hartford and East Hartford.
