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:
A fall session of FAMILY READ will be held at the New Milford VNA located on 68 Park Land Rd. Sessions will be held Oct. 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th, and Nov. 5th (Wednesday). They will begin at 10:30am and run till 12:00pm. A different book will be discussed each week and the book will go home with each family. Light refreshments will be served. For more information please call Literacy Volunteers on the Green at 860-355-0830 or Carol McCarthy at 860-354-7361.
The Family Read program enjoyed a successful fundraiser at Tasty Waves located in New Milford on Sept. 6th. Customers throughout the day enjoyed frozen yougurt, coloring, and drawings for free books. Thank you Tasty Waves for your support!
