Make a DifferenceLiteracy Volunteers

Volunteers are the backbone of our educational programs and operations, enabling us to serve over 1500 adult learners annually. As a LCNV volunteer, you may be the teacher or tutor working to help our learners achieve their learning goals, assess our learners to help with measuring their progress, support LCNV’s mission through community outreach, or strengthen our office operations in a variety of administrative and skill-based opportunities. 

If you are passionate about adult education, consider joining our core of nearly 800 volunteers who are helping LCNV empower Northern Virginia’s adults to participate more fully and confidently in their communities – you could make a difference in an individual's prospects, a family's opportunities, and a community's future.

“I joined LCNV to help adults who need instruction in the English language so they can become active participants in American society… This experience has been very satisfying for me because I have watched my student become more confident in expressing herself in English and she is a role model for the rest of her family. ”
