Literacy Volunteers on the Green’s vision is to help individuals maintain and improve their quality of life through mastery of the English language. We do this by promoting English literacy among individuals in Litchfield and Fairfield counties of Connecticut and surrounding areas in order to help them become independent readers, writers, listeners, and speakers of English through classes as well as natural, authentic, real-life activities and experiences.
Founded in 2005, the organization now has 90 trained volunteer tutors and 150 students and is governed by a 13 member board of directors. It is a ProLiteracy America affiliate and a United Way Partner Agency.
All instruction and materials are provided free of charge. Classes are scheduled at mutually convenient times for learners and volunteer tutors in locations ranging from Danbury in the south to Salisbury-Lakeville in the north. Our programs include:
