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 was afraid of making mistakes, [and] mispronouncing words. I was always quiet and would not read any letter and announcement in front of others. Now I have more confidence in reading and spelling names and words, talking to people, and using the computer. Through the help I got from tutoring, I know I can do it. ”
