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:

2014 Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving Group

One hundred eighty students and tutors of Literacy Volunteers on the Green (LVG) gathered at St. John’s Parish Hall in New Milford on November 19 to share a traditional Thanksgiving dinner of turkey, stuffing, vegetables and pumpkin pie. The annual event focuses on the meaning of this uniquely American holiday and the importance of giving thanks for the opportunities provided by our country. The evening also celebrates the progress and achievements of LVG’s students and the work of its volunteer tutors. Go to the LVG "Events" page for more details and photos.
