Literacy Volunteers of Chautauqua County

adult_literacyWho Are We?
Literacy Volunteers of Chautauqua County is a  non-profit organization that helps adults who want to read, write, or speak English better.

Who Are the Learners?
They are adults who are 18 years and older and need help with either reading and writing or speaking and listening skills.

Who Are the Tutors?
Anyone who has the desire to help others, the time to volunteer, the appropriate skill set and the willingness to learn can become a Literacy Volunteer.

What is Tutoring Like?
Students and tutors decide where and when to meet.  Pairs meet for 2 or more hours a week for at least one year in public places.  Tutors often use resources from our adult literacy library to design lessons targeting individual student needs.
