Each year many of our neighbors are positively affected by the work of Literacy Volunteers of Greater Augusta (LVA). From individual tutoring sessions to services provided to learners through cooperative agreements with other agencies, such as Goodwill Lifeworks and Augusta Adult Education ESL Program. Our volunteers work hard to improve the literacy skills of adults who are seeking a better life.
Family literacy programming, where parents and children participate together in reading and writing activities, are becoming increasingly popular throughout Maine. Since children with low literacy skills often have parents with low literacy skills, encouraging these activities can help to break the cycle of illiteracy. In response to this trend, we offer family literacy activities at the Bread of Life Shelter and coordinate with Literacy For ME to hold family literacy events.
Of course, none of this would be possible without the generous support of our wonderful community. We hope that we can count on you and/or your organization to become a supporter of literacy. Many organizations specify different recognitions for different levels of giving. We at LVA, believe that by giving any amount you are helping others in your community. Even a one dollar donation from a learner’s grandchild is greatly appreciated.
Please follow our facebook page for upcoming events, fundraisers and recognition events for opportunities to give back to your community through literacy.
