Welcome to LVA

Tutor and StudentThe mission of Literacy Volunteers of Greater Augusta – LVA is to promote and foster increased literacy for adults who have low literacy skills or those for whom English is not their native language through volunteer tutoring. We also encourage and aid individuals, groups, or organizations who want to help adults read better through a community communications program. All our services are provided free of charge to anyone in the Greater Augusta region.

LVA and Career Center partnership

HELP!Starting on May 19th, Literacy Volunteers of Greater Augusta (LVA) will have a volunteer stationed at the Augusta Career Center the first and third Tuesday mornings of each month. Our contact at the Career Center, a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor II, has told us; “This is truly great news for consumers in the Augusta Area seeking assistance with job and career searches as well as serving as a resource for those needing assistance with State requirements for unemployment and other services.”  At LVA, we are pleased to carry on our tradition of being a collaborative community partner in supporting learners.

Individuals using Career Center services will have an opportunity to sign up for a time slot with the LVA tutor between the hours of 8:30 to 10 am, the first and third Tuesdays of the month. Anyone finding challenges in applying for benefits, completing resumes or seeking educational assistance may check in with the LVA tutor. The LVA tutor is located in a private and confidential space at the Career Center to ensure privacy and confidentiality for those seeking services. Please share the word.

The Augusta Career Center is located at 21 Enterprise Drive, Suite 2, Augusta, ME. See more information and directions on the Augusta Career Center web page.
