Our Mission

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.
