The mission of Literacy Volunteers of Greater Augusta – LVA is to improve the reading, writing and related literacy skills of adults so each individual may reach their potential.
Our Statement of Values
In fulfilling its mission to help each individual reach their potential, LVA is committed to recognizing the value of each individual, to treating each individual with respect and compassion, to partnering with other service organizations, and to be welcoming to all who seek our services.
Learners meet one -on-one with our executive director to discuss personal goals and to identify areas for development.
Every learner is paired with a volunteer tutor who offers one-to-one, learner-centered instruction that is free, private and confidential.
Learners become proud, confident, and ready to take the next steps in their career and personal lives.
