Our Story

Since 1984, Literacy Volunteers of Collier County (LVCC), a 501c3 non-profit organization, has been offering confidential one-to-one tutoring to adults who want to improve their reading, writing, and English speaking skills to participate more fully in the daily tasks of life such as family, employment, school and community.

Serving over 400 students, and with a growing list of individuals to be served, LVCC helps meet the challenges of Collier County’s growing population to ensure that all people from all walks of life deserve the chance to live productive and fulfilling lives.

LVCC is an accredited affiliate of ProLiteracy America, LVCC’s trained and dedicated tutors work with students of all levels.  All teaching is centered on the individual needs and goals of the each student and is designed to promote the potential and dignity of every student while increasing students’ language skills to help build confidence and self-esteem.

 

When you support literacy, everybody wins!
