Literacy Volunteers on the Green provides free English literacy instruction to adults in Litchfield and northern Fairfield Counties so they can participate fully in the communities we share. Our vision is for every adult to fulfill his or her life goals through English literacy.
We do this by promoting English literacy among individuals to help them become independent readers, writers, listeners, and speakers of English through classes as well as natural, authentic, real-life activities and experiences.
Our students come from dozens of and include beginners to more advanced English speakers.
We provide all the training our volunteer tutors need. They come from all walks of life.
Our programs include English as a Second Language (ESL), basic literacy for native English speakers, workplace literacy conversation groups, and more. 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.
