ABOUT LITERACY VOLUNTEERS OF CAMDEN COUNTY:

LVCC provides free one-on-one and small group tutoring in reading, math and English for Speakers of Other Languages to Camden County adults at the lowest levels of literacy.  Many Camden County residents lack functional English literacy skills and this impedes their ability to acquire productive employment, assist their children in schoolwork and become active community members.  Literacy Volunteers of Camden County addresses this problem by training local volunteers to instruct these adults using a flexible, learner-centered approach.  This year LVCC has over 160 volunteer tutors working with 200 students.
