Imagine a life without literacy skills. Street signs, a menu, and the mail are impossible to read. Speaking clearly to co-workers or understanding telephone conversations is difficult. Writing checks, an e-mail or a note to a child’s teacher is overwhelming. Then imagine the triumph when, after spending time with a literacy tutor, hard-fought personal goals are won. Job situations, family life, and interactions with others are improved. Participation in the mainstream of society is a reality. The end result is a community that includes more confident and productive members. Literacy Volunteers of Somerset County (LVSC) is a non-profit organization that provides one-to-one and small group tutoring to functionally illiterate adults like the ones described above. We fulfill our mission through a network of volunteers recruited and trained in both Basic Literacy and English for Speakers of Other Languages and matched with one or more adult learners. Discover opportunities to help your community and the individuals around you by becoming a literacy volunteer and tutor. Have you resolved to become more involved in your community? This is a great way to start. Sign up for this informative session today!
This event will be held Monday, September 18th at 6:00 PM in the Butterfly Room.
