Our Mission

LVSC trained 35 new tutors during our fiscal year of 2012-2013.  In all, 130 students were tutored a total of 3,850 hours during this year.

According to the National Adult Literacy Survey, approximately 44 million people in the United States cannot read well enough to fill out an application, read a food label, or read a simple story to a child.

Do you want to change a life...
