To provide social and economic empowerment through culturally compassionate English language education
Literacy Volunteers of Greater Worcester was established in 1973 as an English language tutoring program in Worcester. Nearly 50 years later, we have served thousands of adults in need of English language literacy education!
All volunteers, teachers, and staff dedicate their time to help adult immigrants, refugees, and basic literacy students learn to read, write, and speak the English language.
Many of our students are working and raising families while learning the English language. We provide free, flexible, individualized, and confidential English language tutoring for communicative and literacy development. Ultimately, our students have goals beyond English language proficiency, including employment, education, and economic security.
Literacy Volunteers of Greater Worcester is a proud affiliate of Literacy Volunteers of Massachusetts, and an active member of ProLiteracy and GuideStar. As a 501c3 nonprofit organization, donations are tax-deductible and necessary to provide our educational services to low-income adults.
